Happy SysAdmin Day… for DBAs, too!

Today, July 26, 2019 is SysAdmin Day, otherwise known as System Administrator Appreciation Day. Actually, it is the 20th annual SysAdmin Day!

What is SysAdmin Day, you may ask? Well, it is a day to celebrate, appreciate, and thank your IT system administration professionals. These are the folks that keep your IT infrastructure up and running. You know, the people who, if they are doing their job, you don’t even recognize that they are there. The only time they are usually recognized is when you have a problem and they are contacted and dispatched to fix it… but they work every day to minimize the number of problems you experience.

So the SysAdmin Day, take a minute or two to recognize the people at your shop who keep the servers, network, and databases (yes, DBAs are a form of system administrator) running. Buy them a donut.

Here’s to you, Mr. and Mrs. SysAdmin! Have a great day… and I hope you are not working late this weekend.
