Happy 22nd SysAdmin Appreciation Day!

Celebrating the heroes who keep the world's IT backbone running

Every last Friday of July, the global community celebrates our colleagues from the IT team who help us get through our daily business. SysAdmins are always there to help, and with the sudden shift to the home office last year, they ensured we are equipped. SysAdmins juggled supporting their colleagues, adjusting the infrastructure to adapt to the sudden change and ensuring that everything stays up and running. To all SysAdmins out there, kudos to you!

Participate in Our Survey

Last year was marked by the global Corona pandemic. The IT industry also experienced some disruptions: employees overnight suddenly had to work from home, the IT infrastructure had to be converted to meet the requirements of this shift to remote work, etc. So we also want to know from you how the Corona pandemic has changed your daily work as a SysAdmin in the past few months, and will continue to have an impact in the future.

You can help us by participating on our survey here.

By filling out the survey, you also have a choice to enter our raffle and get a chance to win an 8GB Raspberry Pi 4 Model B or a Yubikey 5 NFC!
