What's a SWUG™? The short answer is it's an extension of this online community, delivering over 14 hours of technical, hands-on education for free. We started this program in 2015 and in 2020, we're back and—literally—bigger than ever with two full days in cities across the globe. SWUG connects you with SolarWinds executives, product managers, user experience researchers, technical advisors, engineers, Head Geeks™, and other end users like you. It's a great place to get the answers to the hard questions perplexing you, get details from behind the curtain at SolarWinds, take a pulse to see what other industry professionals are doing, and where they're going. Our goal is to help you be the best IT pro you can be. But don't take our word for it. Here's what attendees at recent SWUGs have to say:
As a first-time attendee, I have to say this was my favorite work event I was able to attend this year. As mentioned, it was an event actually dedicated to us, for us.
— Paige Barnes (medleyp812), Chicago SWUG 2019 Attendee
I've been to events like this before only to be bombarded with what I can purchase from either the host or their partners. I got the feeling that the employees representing SolarWinds genuinely care about their customers.
— Ashley Warren (abby.warren), Chicago SWUG 2019 attendee
This was my first SWUG. I found value in the information provided as well as the personal contacts made during the conference. I will definitely plan on attending next year and I also look forward to THWACKcamp.
— Jim Yocum (jpyocum), New York SWUG 2019 attendee
Fantastic conference. Instead of sitting there listening to a marketing presentation like many conferences, the attendees were able to engage SolarWinds employees and address concerns and speak to their own environments.
— Steven Dean (chezbrgrs), Atlanta SWUG 2019 attendee
As my first SWUG, this was an excellent event. I felt overall it was very informative, and really highlighted the amazing user community around the SolarWinds products.
— Benjamin White (bwhite23) Seattle SWUG 2019 attendee
