Geekly World News: November 2020

Level 13





Hopefully, you all had a safe and spooky Halloween last weekend and a good time raising Cybersecurity Awareness in October. In case you missed it, SentryOne joined the SolarWinds family last month. We’re very excited to continue growing our portfolio of database monitoring and management products. Look for Tom’s thoughts on that in the list below.

What’s planned for November?



The most wonderful time of the SolarWinds year is almost here! THWACKcamp is November 12 – 13, so make sure you’re registered. As an attendee for the past eight years, I’m excited to be part of it this year. I always look forward to the live chat, interesting conversation, new perspectives, and tech speak. We (Head Geeks) are looking forward to hanging out in live chat with you all again this year. Don’t forget attendees (not me ☹) are eligible to win great prizes during the event as well, if you needed extra incentive to join us. Check out the agenda to see what’s in store. Pay special attention to the changes from previous THWACKcamp events based on your feedback, including new breakout rooms and a coffee break built into each day. This event is for you, and we value your feedback, so be sure to look for a survey after the event to let us know what you think.

November 11 – Network Optimization with SolarWinds – German Webinar featuring Sascha Giese

About the Author
For the last 9 years, I spent my time assisting companies large and small with their SolarWinds software.  My previous background was retail, so this was a huge change for me and I love I.T.!  I am an avid gamer, and have been for as long as I can remember.  Now, I have the privilege of being a Head Geek at SolarWinds! What a wild ride! I hope to meet the wonderful people of this community along the way!
