MANCHESTER, NH – If you are tech-curious and interested in the Internet of Things, consider grabbing your free seat at TechToberFest at Dyn, the center of the universe when it comes to the future of New Hampshire’s tech culture.

This one-day event is designed to inspire, educate and connect businesses and organizations focused on using the Internet to its fullest competitive advantage, while boosting and transforming your online presence.

Dyn’s free TechToberFest event will host a roster of some of the brightest minds in technology on October 1 from 8:30 a.m.-4:30 p.m. to discuss trends including cloud load balancing, cyber security, net neutrality, Internet performance and global outages.

If those things don’t all resonate with you, it’s time to tune in and turn up your tech receptors.

“The Internet has become the driving force behind commerce, communication and content,” says Jeremy Hitchcock, Dyn CEO. “Conversations that impact the performance and the governance of the Internet are important to all of us. We wanted to bring those conversations to our guests so we can all play an active role in shaping the future of the Internet. I am thrilled by the line up we have secured.”

Who Should Attend TechToberFest?

  • System / Network Admins charged with ensuring the best performance and continuous availability of your company’s web properties who are managing multiple systems, multiple solutions, and multiple vendors.
  • IT Operations, Infrastructure, and Technology Managers, Directors, and VPs who are responsible for the performance, availability, and security of your company’s overall online infrastructure and you define success as “everything working as it should.”
