Regular visitors might have spotted the new Webcasts menu entry in the header area of Ghacks already. I signed an agreement with a company that is providing free webcasts to interested visitors of Ghacks. Webcasts are presentations that are held in either Windows Media Player or Real Player about specific technology related topics.

The webcasts are all free to watch, the only thing that a user needs to do is to fill out a quick form like his name, email, company and position in that company before the presentation is loaded into the selected media player.

The emphasize currently lies on security and technology related webcasts. Some examples are Hitting Network Vulnerabilities with a One-Two Punch, Doing a Website Redesign with an Internet Marketing Strategy in Mind or Make Customers the Center of Attention with Microsoft Dynamics CRM.

The target audience is made up of system administrators, decision makers, business owners and pretty much everyone who is working in the industry. It could be interesting to technical inclined individuals as well.

Just check them out if webcasts are of interest to you. As I said they change regularly and you can find some interesting technical presentations and videos in there. And yes, it would help Ghacks as well. Let me know if you would like to see different areas or topics addresses in the webcasts.

Update: After a trial phase we have mad the decision to remove the webcast directory from the site again.

    I’m full of webcasts and “whitepapers” like that since Computerworld reading. IMHO it’s just another from of advertising, so I don’t need it like any other ads.

    Sounds like a great idea. When they play in VLC, mPlayer, or any other standard video player please update us. I’m not about to install Real Player just for the webcasts, and naturally Ubuntu does not have Windows Media Player.
