System Administrator Appreciation Day 2016

July 29, 2016 in the World

The System Administrator Appreciation Day, also known as Sysadmin Day, SysAdminDay, SAD or SAAD takes place on July 29, 2016. It is a day to show appreciation for the work of sysadmins and other IT-workers. The day is celebrated annually on the last Friday in July. The Day was created by system administrator Ted Kekatos.

Ted Kekatos was inspired to create the special day by a Hewlett-Packard magazine advertisement in which a system administrator is presented with flowers and fruit-baskets by grateful co-workers as thanks for installing new printers. Kekatos had just installed several of the same model printer at his workplace. Many geek and Internet culture businesses also honor the holiday with special product offerings and contests. Various filk songs have been written to commemorate the day. The songs have reached a level of popularity where they are also covered by other performers.

A system administrator, IT systems administrator, systems administrator, or sysadmin is a person employed to maintain and operate a computer system and/or network. System administrators may be members of an information technology (IT) or Electronics and Communication Engineering department. The duties of a system administrator are wide-ranging, and vary widely from one organization to another. Sysadmins are usually charged with installing, supporting and maintaining servers or other computer systems, and planning for and responding to service outages and other problems.
