Q1 2016 SolarWinds User Groups: Columbus, OH and Dallas/Fort Worth, TX

Community Manager

Folks - we are vigorously pulling together our Q1 SWUG stops and we're coming for YOU Columbus, OH and Dallas/Fort Worth, TX!

We have a very limited set of dates to work with so I wanted to get the announcement out and gauge how many of you would be able to attend in each location.  Reminder, we need AT LEAST 20 attendees at each user group in order for us (SolarWinds staff) to travel.

Columbus, Ohio - January 20, 2016

Dallas/Fort Worth, Texas - March 9, 2016

Click here to RSVP or suggest a different date

HURRY and let us know if you can make either of these times! The sooner we have your feedback the better chances we have to adjust and make this happen!

Wish the Columbus one was on a weekend! Can't make a 2 hour trip without burning vacation.

Wish the Columbus one was in Birmingham adamlboydmikegalechuck71tentwelvedwynn

I have Atlanta on the schedule, nothing confirmed but was hoping to do a meetup sometime in Q2 OR we will be in Atlanta for MS Ignite so we might be able to do something then as well.  What times work best for your team, bsciencefiction.tv‌?

I created the Georgia SWUG group and made you all admins.  Message me and I can show you tools at your disposal to get this going.

Not all of the admins here have Thwack accounts (blaspheme I know!).  If I can convince the business of sending a few on a the company dime, am I able to reserve a spot for them as well?

I like the activity going on. Once the big cities have their days in the sun I'm looking forward to the Midwest (Minneapolis) to be a player in this game.

Yes, of course! Just make sure you've RSVP'd and send me a note how many +1s.

cbunge If there's any specifics that need to be apart of the agenda, please let us know so we can get that worked in as well.

rschroeder I have y'all on the list, just working on getting these groups created.  Want to be an admin to keep the conversation going for your area?

If it comes to Duluth, MN, sure--I'll step up to the plate.  If it's in the St. Paul / Minneapolis area I'll drive down to attend, but I don't have resources or connections there for facilitating a meeting.

Is there a SWUG in Kentucky? If so can i be added? If not can we create one?

No plans right now but glad to see there is interest.  Working to get the program more mature right now, need a bit more justification for travel to Europe.

Hey Joseph - No plans for Kentucky right now but I'm starting to think I should just create a SWUG group for all of the 50 states.  Good to see so much wide-spread interest!

There's definitely widespread interest. Hello from Australia

Understood. You have a few suppliers in the UK that support Solarwinds, is there not an option to contact them and via the channels see how many UK/Europe customers might be interested

Wow this is neat I used to live in Columbus and went to school there.  I can imagine they have some great thwackers there!

Any news on the Columbus meeting? I haven't heard a word since I sent my RSVP. If I show up, will anyone from Solarwinds be there?

Excellent! That link shows "1:30pm 2:00pm: Light box lunch served (will update with detail soon)". However, there have been no updates...

Mark, a confirmation email was sent to all.RSVPS early last week. We are on a waiting list now but 2 people cancelled this morning due to weather. We should have a seat for you. I will follow up via email shortly.

m60freeman - are you referring to the Columbus meetup today? You did not RSVP to this event.  Just want to confirm whether you are referring to Columbus or DFW.

Yes, Columbus today. A little snow won't stop me. See you at 1pm!
