      This article is just so full of good, pithy pullquotes: "Those hoping to make positive social change have to convince people both that something in the world needs changing and there is a constructive, reasonable way to change it. Authoritarians and extremists, on the other hand, often merely have to muddy the waters and weaken […]

#SysAdminDay Dinner 2018 at Abe Erb in Kitchener

Posted by Bob Jonkman on July 6th, 2018

Sorry, no pictures from this year’s SysAdminDay Dinner. But you can enjoy some from the previous years’ collection in the gallery.

SysAdminDay

SysAdminDay

Every year, the last Friday in July is System Administrator Appreciation Day, or SysAdminDay for short (SysAdmins are efficient — why waste syllables?)

System Administrators manage the networks, configure the servers, and make backups for their users. On System Administrator Appreciation Day those users have the opportunity to appreciate their System Administrators by gifting them with chocolate cake and ice cream. But just in case that doesn’t happen, the SysAdmins in Waterloo Region take themselves and their spouses, friends and relations to dinner. Remember how SysAdmins make backups?

Join us at the Abe Erb Brew Pub and Restaurant again this year on Friday, 27 July 2018 from 6:00pm to 10:00pm, meet with other SysAdmins, share funny PEBKAC stories, and have some dinner and a beverage.

You don’t have to be a SysAdmin to come to the SysAdminDay Dinner — Everybody’s welcome! SysAdmins-In-Training, Retired SysAdmins, even people just curious to know what an array of SysAdmins looks like.

See you at the SysAdminDay Dinner!

What: System Administrator Appreciation Day Dinner
When: Friday, 27 July 2018 starting at 6:00pm iCal
Where: Abe Erb Restaurant at The Tannery
Location: 151 Charles Street West, Kitchener, Ontario Map

Leave a comment to let me know if you’re coming, so I can make a reservation at Abe Erb.

–Bob.
