In just over a week, we’ll be welcoming several hundred Dyn clients, partners and the tech community at large through our doors for Dyn Geek Summer Camp. As one of the keynotes, I’m beyond excited and ready for what this two day event will bring.
Somehow, I was able to narrow it down to five specific things you should be excited about.
Our vision for Dyn is guided by the best and brightest minds on the Internet, and members of our CAB will be in town for our annual meeting of the minds. You’ll get to hear their stories on how they built and scaled great companies like Etsy, Box, Homeaway, Iovation and more!
Be sure to connect with them on Twitter leading up to the event, and be doubly sure to interact with them during GSC.
2) Meeting the Dyn team
We’re nothing without our people, and we bleed black and yellow. Meet the folks that make Internet performance happen as they lead breakout sessions throughout the two days. A few topics and people for your cheat sheet:
- Speed and optimization with Dave Connors (VP Tech Ops | LinkedIn)
- Innovation with Scott Hilton (VP Product | LinkedIn)
- Scalability and redundancy with Matt Larson (Chief Architect | LinkedIn)
- Security and DDoS with Andrew Sullivan (Director of DNS | LinkedIn)
- DevOps and technical culture with Pete Cheslock (Director of Ops | LinkedIn)
- The future of Internet Performance with yours truly (Dyn CTO | LinkedIn)
3) Experiencing our (in)famous Silicon Millyard headquarters
What do you get when you put together a climbing wall, Segways, two concert stages, living walls, a Solarium, flight and racing simulators, Skeeball, an employees-only cafe, secret rooms and more? Our 60,000 square foot headquarters of course! You must see it to believe it.
4) Talking about the future of Internet performance
Users demand fast everything and expect reliability in the process. How will tomorrow’s web, mobile and app companies deliver? Learn the best practices that will ensure your success on tomorrow’s Internet.
5) Telling us your stories
Arguably, this is the most important of all five. I can’t stress this statement enough: we want to hear what you’re building, how you’re building it, and the ideas you have for how Dyn can help make it more performant and reliable. You’ll have access to essentially everyone here, plus all the keynotes and CAB members, so the limit is however high and big your sky is. Ask away!
