IT People are unique in the professional world. They sit at the intersection between tech and business to do the impossible, bring ordinary everyday businesses into the 21st century - usually kicking and screaming.
It is our core belief that at your average, non-tech, company the IT person is the real Hero. Where users are stubborn in their love of outdated platforms, lack in basic computer skills, and have the burning need to click every download button that comes their way. Most people have no idea what we actually do, and many even think of us as mysterious beings in the basement.
But without us, your average business would grind to a silent halt. We keep computers humming and servers online. We make sure printers print, scanners scan and networks network. And we do all this with minimal recognition and maximum effort.
tabGeeks was formed to be a community for us IT Heroes. A place to get together, on and offline, to share war stories, gain professional development and meet others who understand who we are and what we do.
