Nice. I'd be happy to write one about my experiences developing
Prosody, which has been an interesting journey for me, right from
start when I had "You can't use Lua for *that*!" from every person I
spoke to about it. It was the doubt of those people that kept me
going, and now Prosody is a large (for Lua) codebase, and competitive
with alternative XMPP servers written in Java, erlang, and all the
other "proper" server-side languages. Quite simply, Lua rocks :)
