 Geekly World News - April 2022

March was busy for us with THWACKcamp, SQL Bits, and GISEC! Additionally, a couple of us got to take some needed time off. Here in the US, March also meant Spring Break for those of us with kids and Mardi Gras and Saint Patrick’s Day for those who celebrate. In April, we’re looking forward to SolarWinds User Groups (SWUG) being back in action, and hope to see you in London.
