Coming off of SolarWinds' annual virtual learning event, THWACKcamp 2015 provided thousands of attendees with several deep-dive, best practice and how-to sessions on a number of topics regarding SolarWinds products and IT management in general.  With over 9 hours of streaming video and live chat, there was a ton of information to consume so our Head Geeks have consolidated some of their favorite moments and in what better fashion than a monthly mission contest?!

 

August Mission

That's right folks, it's time for thwackCamp: The Mission. Each day we will release a new question which can be answered by watching one of the featured thwackCamp sessions.  Correctly answer all 5 questions in a given week and you'll be entered to win the weekly prize.  Correctly answer all 20 questions before August 30th and you'll be entered to win ONE OF TWO grand prizes: a Two-wheel Smart Scooter!  Follow the rules and schedule below to play along.
