THWACK Monthly Mission - September 2020


There are many types of stacks. Stacks of paperwork (I know you know), stacks of laundry (you know I know), and software stacks (you know I know you know), and for some reason, whatever we’re looking for isn’t at the top, isn’t at the bottom, it’s hidden somewhere in the middle. It’s protected on all sides by layers of complexity, only visible to the trained eye (like my mom… how does she always know where everything is?).

Well, you’ve been training for this mission. You’ve been honing your sight and stretching your perception and now—NOW—you’re ready to unpack the stack. You’ll dig for truths, unearth intricacies, finally put away the last hamper worth of clothes to find your favorite pair of jeans that you just KNOW you ran through the laundry.

Find what you’re looking for this month and expand your view of application dependencies.


Use the mission’s resources to complete the tasks and answer the questions for a chance to win!

Correctly answer each question during the week and you'll be entered for a chance to win the weekly prize.

Correctly answer all 20 questions over the course of the month and you'll be entered for a chance to win the grand prize.

150 points are being awarded for each correctly answered question. There are 20 questions, which means you can earn a maximum of 3,000 points for this mission.
