NIC is an organization with a vast repository of knowledge cultivated by individuals. Sharing of this knowledge is a way to overcome many challenges and also feel motivated. Launched with the same objective, the Webinar Series has each session of half an hour duration. The speaker from any NIC location in the country connects through Video Conferencing and speaks on the chosen technical topic by sharing a power point presentation, which is broadcasted through webcast. The session is conducted from 1:30 pm to 2:00 pm every working day, thereby enabling participation of maximum number of NICians.
Beginning with one session per day, it was escalated to two parallel technical sessions every day in November 2017. NIC officials from Scientist-F to Scientist-D took keen interest and delivered lectures on varied topics ranging from Database, Big Data, Cyber Security, Open Source Technologies, Programming Language, Software Quality, Documentation to Cutting-edge Technologies like Blockchain, Artificial Intelligence, Enterprise Architecture, Deep Learning, and many more. It is noteworthy that 600 plus sessions have been delivered so far in the last two years.
