Save the Date Because THWACKcamp Is Back

The IT Knowledge Fest—THWACKcamp—is back for another year of spectacular content in 2020. In this, the ninth year of THWACKcamp, you’ll join with thousands of other technology professionals from around the world. Like always, it’s 100% free.

The best part of THWACKcamp is you can attend from anywhere. THWACKcamp is—and has always been—a virtual conference. SolarWinds was doing an annual virtual conference before virtual conferences were cool. Yeah, you know who we’re talking about.

There are many things I love about THWACKcamp, and most of it started when I was still a customer. I remember blocking off two days in the fall where no one was allowed to bother me. I’d set up in a conference room and close the door. They were my days to learn more about SolarWinds, chat with presenters and attendees, and maybe win a prize. Every year, I left with a laundry list of ideas I wanted to implement, the skills I needed to implement them, and the discussion points I could share with my management about why I wanted to implement them. Each year, THWACKcamp made me a better monitoring professional.

I like to use THWACKcamp as an excuse to talk to technology professionals from around the world in a very casual setting. This year, we’re making it bigger and better for everyone. I’m crazy excited about the format, the technology, and the way we’re presenting the content we’re putting together this year. I want to share all of the goodness, but I can’t say any more. I’ve been sworn to secrecy. You’ll have to attend to be a part of it.

But you don’t have to take my word for it—grab the calendar invite, mark your calendar for the registration day, and listen to a few members of the community talk about what makes THWACKcamp so special. Don’t forget to let your coworkers, managers, and colleagues know about THWACKcamp, so they can join us as well. It’s free for everyone and the more the merrier. I look forward to (virtually) seeing everyone on November 12 – 13, 2020.
