I also did the math and if we're counting from LuaRocks 1.0, that's 30
years of Lua and 15 years of LuaRocks! (It did have a significant 0.x
pre-history, though!)

My plan is to attend the workshop! I see it is on a Tuesday, is it
going to be a single-day event?

Congratulations to the Lua team, and many thanks for the immense
impact on my career!
