The OTP course looks interesting, but I must admit, I'll have to  
reorganise things, I am currently planning to be in the states 'till  
6th Nov.

Is the OTP course starting 5th Nov. a hands-on course? The course  
approach isn't clear to me.
Would it be a reasonable level if all my Erlang experience has been  
based on Joe's book, and 'hacking around'?

Has anyone been on the course, who is also familiar with the contents  
of Joe's book? Have you got comments about the course that you could
