It seems that FPGAs are a hot topic these days and becoming more important all the time. A few years ago, I never thought I would use an FPGA, but that's changed now. I had a brief intro to VDHL at UC, Irvine in Electrical Engineering school, but us students we're really on our own with just a book. I'd like to see a tutorial or short course with the basics of programming in VDHL or Verilog or both. I realize there are differences, such as that one of them is strongly typed and the other is not. But I think it would be useful to learn the basics of both.
