We are considering the publication of a book on "Lua Programming Gems",

series. The purpose of this message is to probe whether there is enough
interest in such a project.
If you are interested in writing one or more Lua Programming Gems, please
state your intention here in lua-l. If there is enough interest, then a
separate channel will be created for further discussion.


Great idea! I would like to contribute to this effort.
I think that "Lua Gems" should be complementary to PiL2 and to cover
advanced topics of Lua programming such as:

* Useful Lua debugging techniques
* Concurrent (including multi-threading) programming in  Lua
* Lua and the Web (Kepler project...)
* Embedding/Extending Lua: design patterns and difficult cases
* Lua graphics bindings (wxLua, luaQt, etc)
* Distributed Lua programming, Lua-RPC, data serialization
* Lua and databases

Or well, might be too much for a single book:-)
