THWACKcamp 2018 – There’s an API for That: Introduction to the SolarWinds Orion SDK

Community Manager

We’re sure getting excited for THWACKcamp™ 2018, and I’m particularly excited for you to join me at one of my sessions, There’s an API for That: Introduction to the SolarWinds® Orion® SDK. You won’t want to miss out on this exciting and informative session, so be sure to make it a part of your session track planning, along with the other highly-anticipated THWACKcamp sessions.

During this session, I’ll be joined by two fellow THWACK® MVPs. You’ll be able to watch history in the making, as it’s the first time three MVPs present a THWACKcamp session together. On top of being THWACK all-stars and IT experts, Zack Mütchler (zackm) is an experienced software engineer and Leon Adato (adatole) is a SolarWinds Head Geek™. Together, the three of us will deep dive into the Orion Platform API, which is readily available for anyone who has installed and is working on the Orion Platform. As the title implies, this session is not just about the API, but also the Software Development Kit (SDK), which is essentially a bunch of tools that can help you use and interact with the API. With all this already at your disposal, what next? Tune into this session so you can learn exactly what the SDK and API are capable of, and how you can use both to their greatest potential, including removing some of the repetition involved with your tasks, and in the process, make your life a little easier.

THWACKcamp is the two-day, premier online IT event that anyone involved in or interested in the IT world should be a part of. A top-tier event like this must be pretty expensive, right? Not at all. You can take part in this entirely virtual, totally awesome IT learning event for free! You don’t even have to worry about travel costs, since it can be accessed anywhere there’s Wi-Fi. Register now for THWACKcamp 2018, taking place October 17 – 18. See you there!

It would be fun to come to one of these live some time.  I'm so busy with work I don't often travel as often but I do want to attend at some point.  Also props to tdanner​ aka Tim Danner for all his hard work on the SolarWinds Orion API and SDK.

Signed up.  Very interested in hearing more about this.  Thanks!

Level 15

Looking forward to it! I gave the API to our Intel/Linux server teams and they integrated it into their maintenance and server retirement scripts. Everything is automated and that's a great thing!

Level 21

I needed this two years ago.  Here's hoping it's robust and useful and intuitive for a non-programmer.
Level 16

Cool thanks, I just registered for it
