Dyn's Kyle York and Jeremy Hitchcock kicked off Geek Summer Camp with a talk on how the event came to be, why the company loves its customers and friends so much and why the first-ever GSC was held in New Hampshire, rather than another more trendy location.

  • When I was hired as a 20 year old marketing intern at my old company WhippleHill (Travis Warren is here), I was tasked with helping put on the first annual customer conference.
  • It was very different back then, with 100's of pages of paper in binders being the glaring difference.
  • That was the summer of 2003. They just held their 11th annual conference.
  • When I came to Dyn in late 2008, we talked very early on about putting together a user conference.
  • It was early 2009 when the TLC was born and it wasn't until last summer, 2012, we felt it was right to host our first TLC Meeting --- we finally looked at ourselves as as credible as this prestigious group.
  • It was early 2009 when the TLC was born and it wasn't until last summer, 2012, we felt it was right to host our first TLC Meeting --- we finally looked at ourselves as as credible as this prestigious group.
  • After the amazing success of that, and client Mark Imbriaco of Github (once 37signals, Living Social, Heroku), called it Geek Summer Camp --- between O'Reilly's Velocity and Surge Conference in Baltimore, we decided to embrace it and throw our first Internet Performance conference in our HQ here in Manchester, NH.
  • Talk about the positioning... and how everyone in the crowd fits into our story. How they are a part of our mission. How grateful we are.
  • We have folks from Netflix, Boston Globe, Accenture, Cisco, AMC Networks, Staples, Raytheon, Netsuite, Constant Contact, Dartmouth, etc.
  • Why Dyn is based on New Hampshire, why we decided to do an event here during the summer, our NH reputation, etc.
  • Focus on specifically why Manchester, why here and what’s to come.
  • Great keynotes, great people, great opportunities to connect unlike any other conference.
  • Talk about the positioning... and how everyone in the crowd fits into our story. How they are a part of our mission. How grateful we are.
