Somehow, it became October without my noticing it. With a new month comes a new set of webcasts. The webcasts we have coming up for October cover some great topics.
One of the great things about this series is that every webcast is recorded and then made available for on-demand viewing. As such, you may find it worth your while to register for a webcast you’re interested in even if you can’t attend it live. Folks who register will get email with a link to the recording as soon as it’s posted.
The webcasts run on Thursdays at 8:00 PDT, 11:00EDT, 16:00 UTC. The topics for October and their brief descriptions are listed below. You can register for any of the October webcasts by clicking here.
