The month of July is always special for various reasons. We officially welcome the summer heatwave, and it’s also one of those times where we look forward to taking a break and spending time with family. Another reason why July is special is because it’s time to give thanks to your friendly Systems Administrator, yes, the person you always call for help when you get locked out of your computer, or when your email stops working, or when the internet is down, or when your mouse stops responding, or when you need just about anything.
To all the SysAdmins and IT superheroes out there, SysAdmin Day is fast approaching. And this year, just like every year, we at SolarWinds dedicate the entire month of July to SysAdmins across the world and we invite you to join the festivities as we celebrate SysAdmin Day in the biggest possible way.
SysAdmin Day can mean a lot of things to IT pros and organizations. But, what I think makes SysAdmin Day a day to remember is being able to share your journey with fellow SysAdmins and IT pros. So, in the comment section, share why you chose this career path, the meaning behind those defining moments, or remind us about the day you knew you were going to be a SysAdmin. Take this time to also narrate funny instances or end-user stories that made you laugh or challenging situations you successfully dealt with in your very own server rooms.
We’re super thrilled about this year’s SysAdmin Day because we will have fun weekly blogs on Geek Speak to celebrate and a thwack monthly mission that offers weekly contests and exciting giveaways. Some of these sweet prizes include:
- Week 1 - $100 to Game Stop - July 13th
- Week 2 - GoPro - July 20th
- Week 3 - $100 ThinkGeek gift card - July 27th
- Week 4 - Lightsaber - August 3rd
- And a Grand prize drawing for the Nvidia Sheild Pro + Video Gaming Chair will be held on August 3rd!
Now it’s time to get the party started. Visit the July thwack monthly mission page today!
