Furthering its mission to advance the practice of software engineering and computer science, the IEEE Computer Society has launched a webinar showroom featuring some of the profession’s leading thinkers.

“Building on our well-regarded publishing program, these low-cost webinars bring the latest insights from some of the profession’s leading thinkers to your desktop,” said Dick Price, director of Sales & Marketing. “To create these learning tools, we engaged the experts who edit our magazines such as Computer, IEEE Software, and IT Professional, and who support the Computer Society’s Build Your Career and Computing Now websites and certification and training programs.”

Each recorded session typically lasts one hour, with the last 10 minutes devoted to questions and answers. Speakers include such well-known names as Grady Booch, Mary Poppendieck, Kent Beck, and Steve McConnell. Many are moderated by Lockheed Martin Fellows or senior technical staff.

Ten-time access to a webinar for 30 days is available for the introductory price of $19.00. Or for the introductory price of $39.00, you can gain 10-time, 30-day access to the entire collection. To view the list of webinars and presenters, visit

Many of the webinars were developed through a partnership between and Computer Society and Lockheed Martin's Systems and Software Initiative. Designed to be of value and interest to system and software engineers and architects, the webinars will help systems and software engineers and architects achieve flawless execution in the development of complex solutions that are delivered problem-free to the customer.

Sponsorship opportunities are available. Organizations can sponsor a single webinar, underwrite a collection of related webinars, or support an entire season of presentations. The webinars can be used for lead generation or as an in-house education tool. Arrangements are flexible. Organizations can collaborate closely on topics and presenters, or sponsor webinars the Computer Society has pre-arranged.
