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?!
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.
- A new question will open every day (Monday - Friday) starting on August 3rd.
- Once a question has opened, it will remain open until August 30th @ 11:59pm CST. Check the schedule below for exact open/close times.
- Questions are a mixture of multiple choice and fill-in-the-blank.
- Multiple choice - Only your first attempt counts. Double check your answers!
