May Contest Winners

After going through the contest entrants for May, we’ve come to a decision.
Joe, Dave, and I couldn’t decide between an entry on socket programming (which appears to be broken now) and one on ErlUnit.

The writers of these posts should drop me a line to get set up for their free copies of Programming Erlang: Software for a Concurrent World.

If you’re interested in a copy, never fear. The Erlang Blogging contest is still running. Go ahead and write a blog post about Erlang, and add a link to it in the comments below. If you’re post is selected as our June Winner, you’ll win a copy of Joe’s book as soon as it’s in print. Great topics to write about include tools for Erlang programming, tutorials about Erlang modules or software, and tutorials about Erlang itself.

Thanks for the support in May, and good luck to everyone who enters in June.

The first ( is pretty much a raw translation from the Java original, while the second ( attempts to parallelise the initialisation of the database.

I've already bought the PDF version of Programming Erlang, so if I win (hah!) feel free to donate the cost to the charity of your choice.
