Hacking & Information Security
As aspired to be Ethical Hacker, or even as developers, I think it would be nice to have courses about all this topic of information security.
It includes subjects like SQL Injection,Attackers thinking, Social Engineering, Brute Force, Wireless Hacking, Sniffing and and so forth - subject of the CEH (Certified Ethical Hacker) diploma.
I think that nowadays, hacking (basics and advanced) is an issue that every IT professional (include developers) should be revealed to.
I would love to see more and more on this topic as its serious issue now days, so being a developer we should know what to do for security. Very excited to see that.

I know that this is already assumed, but I just wanted to be explicit: please let there be lots of demos and not just discuss the concepts and theories. :-)

Yes Ethical Hacking and information security is very important.
An Absolute necessity, this is becoming more and more prevailent, with higher exposure from high profile industry information leakage. Information security is surely poised to take the spotlight in all areas of Application Development.
Can we have InDepth Video series on ETHICAL HACKING - Details, Tricks and Tips,etc...

A great idea. I think I would phrase the topic as something along the lines of "InfoSec Best Practices and Counter-Measures". It should be a continuing video series, much like the "Patterns and Practices" series. Each video could showcase the type of attack, common symptoms of the attack in progress, how to stop the attack before it happens, and how to react if the attack has taken place.
