National IT Professionals Day
the third Tuesday in September (since 2015)
Solarwinds in March 2015
Started in 2015 by SolarWinds, a provider of hybrid IT infrastructure management software, National IT Professionals Day celebrates the information technology experts who keep the wheels of business turning. It is an all-encompassing holiday honoring all IT professionals, no matter their discipline. Examples of those honored include network engineers, database administrators, system administrators, developers, IT support technicians, and information security professionals. Today these IT professionals are thanked for all their hard work.
How to Observe
Celebrate the day by thanking all those who work in IT fields. Perhaps you could forego bugging them with any technology related questions you have today, and instead, pick them up a gift to show your appreciation. This is also a good day to learn more about information technology. You could sign up for an online class or read a book that deals with the subject.
