+First and foremost, you are expected to have a basic knowledge of how the Lua 
+programming language works. In most cases, we will try to be as pedagogical 
+as possible and link to documents describing the functions used in the 
+examples, but there are also many cases where it is necessary to either 
+just assume that "it works" or do some digging yourself into what the hows 
+and whys of various function calls.
