Erlang in Practice - Screencasts with Kevin Smith

Pragmatic has renamed Kevin's screencast series to "Erlang in Practice".

So far there have been six episodes:
  • Episode 1: Sending and Receiving Chat Messages ($5.00, 30 mins)
  • Episode 2: Messaging Clients By Nickname ($5.00, 29 mins)
  • Episode 3: Distributing Clients In A Multi-node Environment ($5.00, 31 mins)
  • Episode 4: Storing Messages in the Mnesia Database ($5.00, 39 mins)
  • Episode 5: Unit Testing with EUnit ($5.00, 29 mins)
  • Episode 6: Adding REST Support with MochiWeb ($5.00, 46 mins)
I bought episode 5 and liked it, so I bought the rest as well.

The price is fair, especially if you live in the Euro zone, thanks to the weak dollar I paid around €3.20 per episode.
