Over the past two months, I've been slowly working on a new tutorial
for the Erlang community.  Here is the abstract:

     This guide shows you how to write an Erlang program that
     communicates with an external Python echo server. It will also
     demonstrate the use of several Erlang concepts including ports,
     gen_servers, supervisors, and applications.

Here is a link to the tutorial:

If it is well-received, perhaps it could be included in the How-To
section of the site.
