This is the second Erlang OTP video for the Chicago Erlang User Group April 21st meeting. Garrett covers transitioning to Erlang from Python and also does a great job talking about why Erlang in the first place. He humorously covers broad topics in this video from the Erlang standard library, to recursion, to how OTP is like Django! Definitely worth watching.
