Happy 2017 SysAdmin Appreciation Day! Today, we celebrate YOU, the unsung heroes of organizations around the world.
Each year on the last Friday of July, we honor system administrators everywhere. We are grateful for stable internet connections, working printers and fast computers. We have grown to expect these tools to always be up and running, day or night. And most of the time they are, thanks to our amazing colleagues in the IT department. System administrators don’t always get the appreciation they deserve, but today, we officially want to say thank you.
To celebrate this important day, we’ve prepared some cool assets for you, so keep reading!
