National Techies Day (USA)

National Techies Day is officially old enough to drink this year! 21 years have passed since the first inaugural National Techies Day and here at DBLX we want to celebrate all things tech, learning and all techie people in the United States. Here’s to you who help us all with all of our technological needs!

What is National Techies Day?

National Techies Day is a celebration of all people who work in tech! So whether it’s the I.T. people at your work, that member of your family who just knows how to fix the TV/tablet/computer, or anything techie in-between. It doesn’t matter whether they do it for a living or not, it’s all about supporting those who are good with tech.

How Did National Techies Day Come in to Existence?

It was started by several tech companies back in 1999 as a way to encourage more young people to get into tech and tech industries. They predicted way back then that the future would have more tech-driven jobs and we’d rely more on tech generally in our day-to-day work lives. As is plain to see here in 2020, they weren’t wrong!

What Can I do then to Celebrate National Techies Day?

Show some love to the techies in your life! Whether it’s a post on social media or some food for the IT department, showing your support for techies is never a bad thing, especially on a day like today. 

Another way is through embracing the unknown in tech. Today is the perfect opportunity to learn something new in tech, whether it’s a brand-new program or how to use a smartphone for the first time. Newbie or veteran, whatever your age and skill level, learning something new should never be sniffed at.

It doesn’t even have to be around tech. Why not choose to do an off the shelf course or some bespoke elearning for National Techies Day? Embrace technology to learn in a whole new fun, interactive way!

Here at DBLX we embrace tech every single day, and from our shores to yours, we hope you have a wonderful National Techies Day! And if you feel like you could use some elearning, whether it’s about tech, tech process or anything in-between, we’re more than capable of rising to the challenge and creating bespoke, engaging elearning content for you and your business.

Get in touch, and let’s make something amazing together, today.
