    Greetings!  This is such a great list of resources!  Thanks very much for posting it up!  However, it seems that I’m unable to access the videos in Section 4.  When I navigate to them and hit “Download” or click the image URL of the file, it brings me to a blank page and does nothing.  Any ideas of why this might be happening?

    [Anu] Hmm…I can’t repro this problem. Lemme try hosting this in C9 or Youtube – that should help!

    Thanks much!

    ALM 1 & 2 videos do not seem to have sound. Visuals look good though.

     [Anu] No sound on any of the videos actually 🙂

  5. Ankit says:

    I like the simplicity of logging bugs (In ALM 6 video)

    [Anu] Gee – thanks! That’s our primary scenario for Dev10 : intended to make life easier for both dev and test

  6. Bhups says:

    all the videos seem to have been removed :(…any clues?

    [Anu] I can still access them. Could you try again?
