London SWUG: Better than 50 Monkeys with Typewriters

What happens when you put over a hundred IT professionals in a room together? You may not end up with the collected works of William Shakespeare, but you will end up with a fantastic event where everyone shares insights and benefits from the hive mind that is THWACK.  And we’re coming back to London on May 8-9, 2024.

A SolarWinds User Group (SWUG) is the best place to collaborate with SolarWinds users and speak directly with the Solarians who use, steer, support, and teach the products.  If you’ve got a question, someone in the room’s got an answer.  We’ve got a jam-packed two-day SWUG for the low cost of nothing, payable in three easy installments of zilch.  That’s right, a SolarWinds User Group is and always will be free.  Two days of exclusive, educational, collaborative, and entertaining content inspired by the THWACK community and how we all share our best to improve each other.

If you know SWUG, you know London is one of our favorite towns and we’re always proper chuffed to meet THWACKsters in real life.  For 2024, we’ll host the event at the Radisson Blu Edwardian Heathrow Hotel & Conference Centre. If you don’t feel like commuting or are traveling from out of town, the venue has offered a discounted rate (with some nice extras) for SWUG attendees.

Presently, our platoon of primate presenters is painstakingly preparing the programs for publication. We’ll have sessions about the latest and greatest of the SolarWinds solutions, getting the most out of your self-hosted, cloud-hosted, database, or service management solutions, sessions from the SolarWinds THWACK MVPs, User Experience feedback sessions, plenty of breaks to keep everyone energized, and attendee-driven discussions.  Come to see us Solarians but stay to engage with your fellow THWACKsters.

Get in on the ground floor and reserve your seat and hotel room now.  Both are in limited supply and when they’re gone, they’re gone.  We can’t promise Mercutio-level monologuing, but it’s an opportunity you don’t want to miss.

Dramatic over-acting is optional.
