Wow—we can’t believe it’s been 20 years since we started out in this amazing business, bringing our IT passion and expertise to technology professionals like you. But as they say, time flies when you’re having fun! It’s been a fast-paced, extraordinary journey for all of us here at SolarWinds, and we’re excited to celebrate our 20th anniversary with an interactive timeline and a Bonus Mission for all you THWACKsters.
We’ve all seen a lot come and go the past 20 years—and this month we want to test you with tech trivia to see how many milestones you can remember correctly. Ready to take a trip down memory lane? Fire up the ol’ time machine and prepare to celebrate the past 20 years of IT with SolarWinds.
Let’s get started!
SEPTEMBER BONUS MISSION
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.
A new question will open every day (Monday - Friday) starting on August 26, 2019. Once a question has opened, it will remain open until September 22, 2019 at 11:59 p.m. CT. Check the schedule below for exact open/close times.
But wait—there's more! Record a short video of how your journey has been with SolarWinds. As SolarWinds reaches another milestone this year – marking 20 years in business – we want to make sure everyone gets a chance to contribute. We want your help in marking this milestone.
August 28 - September 22, 2019
All participants will receive 3,000 points for their submission.
The first 50 submissions will receive an exclusive SolarWinds 20 hoodie.
A panel of judges will pick a single submission and that contributor will receive a cold-aisle data center survival pack including the SolarWinds 20 hoodie, a thermal insulated mug, and a custom blanket.
Our Video Team will expertly craft the submissions into videos to be used as part of our celebration. We're anxious to see everyone’s submissions, so get going!
