Yes, I had it also in the back of my head.

When someone ask me about an introduction to CDI I give the Weld documentation as reference. But it would be far stronger if we’d extracted it and make it agnostic or add specific part for each implementation (any CanDI man in the room ?).

I also had these post in mind  as well :
- Tutorial - Introduction to CDI - Contexts and Dependency Injection for Java EE (JSR 299) by Mark and Pete [1]
-  CDI Dependency Injection - An Introductory Tutorial by Rick [2]
They both are related to CDI 1.0 but could be update to CDI 1.1
