Hi Edmond,

You're not alone--there is a hurdle to get over, a different way of thinking 
about testing. My talk at the last Erlang Factory in SF was specifically 
intended to help people just starting out--the video and slides are on the 
web at 
http://www.erlang-factory.com/conference/SFBay2011/speakers/JohnHughes. Be 
interested to hear if you find it helpful/not helpful.
