Top 3 Reasons to Become – or Not to Become – a SysAdmin


The time was September, 2014. Scotland narrowly voted to stay in the U.K. Guardians of the Galaxy was the number one box office hit. And the Devolutions Crew was busy asking the wonderful members of our community (a.k.a. YOU) to share the top 3 reasons to become a SysAdmin, and the top 3 reasons not to become a SysAdmin.

So today, as we gear up to celebrate SysAdmin Appreciation Day on July 28, we thought it would be fun to hit the wayback button and recap the results from our September 2014 poll.

Top 3 Reasons to Become a System Administrator

But really, what makes this aspect of the job so special is that you get the chance to work with some great people, and make a positive difference in their lives.
