[erlang-questions] Videos from Erlang Factory SF Bay 2014 up on ErlangCentral.org

Note that the videos are actually hosted on Youtube - not on Erlang Central:

https://www.youtube.com/user/ErlangSolutions?feature=watch

You can watch them there - no registration necessary.

Great video formats, BTW, and thanks ESL for the very timely upload. :)

BR,
Ulf W

> I had the same problem - I cannot read or watch content on Erlang Central website without an account so I actually set up an account in order to do so (very rare occurrence). Then I do not receive the activation email which it seems you must have to actually use an account. So I try to log in and fail, then go to the effort of requesting another activation email, which also does not arrive. At this point I throw up my hands, close the Erlang Central tab, and move on. ;-)
