A few months after the release of the OpenLayers Cookbook I have been working on a presentation about OpenLayers for @geoinquiets at Barcelona (BCN) that will be celebrated the next December 20th (see the event here) at the offices of Cantera-Tech.
Both the presentation and source code examples materials are freely available at my repository on GitHub as open projects and I would like you contribute to:
The presentation is available online at http://acanimal.github.com/OpenLayers-Presentation and the cookbook examples at http://acanimal.github.com/Openlayers-Cookbook.
Please take into account some examples do not work because there is no backend PHP server to serve some required content.
The OpenLayers Cookbook was released with a set of samples showing almost all the recipes in the book in action.
I built the samples as a RIA application with a menu bar for each chapter which allows to select te recipe to load and allowing to show the related source of each recipe.
As any piece of software, the book samples requires some updates from time to time and, because of this I decide to upload the source code to GitHub and update it to the version 1.1.
Next are some of the improvements you will find:

To run the samples you need download the code and put within your local web server (take a look to the documentation).
Remember, you are welcome to contribute and create new recipes !!!
As a said at the beginning, I have the opportunity to make a presentation for the @geoinquiets folks at Barcelona.
But who are the GeoInquiets? Well, we are (I like to include me) a bunch of enthusiast and professionals related with GIS close to Barcelona.
Note: The GeoInquiets initiative has been successfully replicated in other hispanic places like: Madrid, Buenos Aires, Valencia, Tenerife, Galicia, Córdoba, Cantabria, ...
The presentation was made using simply HTML technologies to maximize its portability and avoid proprietary formats. Croncretely, I used the next set of tools to generate it::
Again, remember it is open sourced so you can contribute and use to make your own presentations.
