The SolarWinds Guide to Work From Home: Additional (external) Resources

Level 18

If you’ve been keeping up with this series (and we hope you have), you’ve heard our opinions, tips, and tricks for working from home. Now, we’ve pooled together external resources from the WFH community, our teacher and school administrator friends, and other friends who help them (and us). These range from other WFH guides to online learning resources (free) for your kiddos.

With all the inspirational stories we’ve seen and heard regarding the immense work our schools are doing and have done to put something together for the kids to maintain distance learning at this time, we know you likely have already gotten things from your kids’ schools that may include assignments, suggestions, and online library info. These are merely options to augment what you may have already received. Some of them involve learning through games, so are quite engaging for the kids, and some are virtual field trips you can explore together.

As you might imagine, there are a lot of resources popping up as other companies and individuals come up to speed on the WFH process. A few that caught our eye include:

This is by no means an exhaustive list, . We hope these provided some guidance or assistance, as needed. Feel free to share with family, friends, colleagues, and your communities. We are all in this together! Look forward to one final post in this series.

About the Author
In my sordid career, I have been an actor, bug exterminator and wild-animal remover (nothing crazy like pumas or wildebeasts. Just skunks and raccoons.), electrician, carpenter, stage-combat instructor, American Sign Language interpreter, and Sunday school teacher. Oh, and I work with computers. Since 1989 (when you got a free copy of Windows 286 on twelve 5¼” floppies when you bought a copy of Excel 1.0) I have worked as a classroom instructor, courseware designer, desktop support tech, server support engineer, and software distribution expert. Then about 14 years ago I got involved with systems monitoring. I've worked with a wide range of tools: Tivoli, Nagios, Patrol, ZenOss, OpenView, SiteScope, and of course SolarWinds. I've designed solutions for companies that were extremely modest (~10 systems) to those that were mind-bogglingly large (250,000 systems in 5,000 locations). During that time, I've had to chance to learn about monitoring all types of systems – routers, switches, load-balancers, and SAN fabric as well as windows, linux, and unix servers running on physical and virtual platforms.
