If they are as entertaining as we expect, you could win an Amazon Echo.
It’s that time of the year again when things go bump in the night. Well, in IT, things go bump all year round. From DDOS to disaster, we bet you’ve got IT horror stories worth sharing. Change the names to protect the innocent, if you wish—and definitely if you must—but please share the most frightening, shock-worthy (hilarious, incredible, dunderheaded) scenarios you have encountered in your IT career.
The pay off? The three best stories will be selected by you and your peers, right here, and each storyteller will win an Amazon Echo smart speaker.
Submit your Halloween IT horror story of ransomware, end-user mischief, or an epic IT fail—by commenting on this blog or tweeting it to @Code42 tagged with #HalloweenIT. The Code42 team will then select the top six stories by 5:00 pm (CT) on Monday, October 31, 2016. We will post them to our Data on the Edge blog where you, your cohorts and the public will have the opportunity to vote for your favorite story.
The top three winners will be notified by direct message on Twitter or by email if stories were submitted on the blog. After which, details will be made known on Code42’s Twitter and Data on the Edge blog.
Please read the terms and conditions to make sure you are eligible. To enter, you need to be 18 or older and live in the United States or United Kingdom. If you win, you will need to provide us with your contact details, so we can send the Amazon Echo to you.
We look forward to your #HalloweenIT tweets and stories below. Happy haunting!
