If budgets allowed, I think all of us in IT might spend a month every year attending events. And while Bruno Mars was apparently a great way to wrap-up Cisco Live 2017, the real draw for IT professionals, is and always will be, education. Technology is evolving more rapidly than ever. Cloud, DevOps, and even diversifying, specialized, on-premises gear like Flash, extorts more and more demand for learning just to keep up. Of course, the sad reality is that travel and education budgets don’t support a month of fun conference travel every year. This conundrum led to the genesis of THWACKcamp.

 

For 2017, SolarWinds will host its sixth THWACKcamp, a two-day, live, virtual learning event with eighteen sessions split into two tracks. This year, THWACKcamp has expanded to include topics from the breadth of the SolarWinds portfolio: there will be deep-dive presentations, thought leadership discussions, and panels that cover more than best practices, insider tips, and recommendations from the community about the SolarWinds Orion suite. This year we also introduce SolarWinds Monitoring Cloud product how-tos for cloud-native developers, as well as a peek into managed service providers’ approaches to assuring reliable service delivery to their subscribers. A holdover from 2016 is the senior executive keynote, with a look into the future of SolarWinds to see where its products are headed. THWACKcamp 2017 will be better than ever, so be sure you’re there October 18-19.
