DNN Summit will be here before you know it and as the excitement continues to grow so does our anticipation for the event. Training has been announced, speakers are getting added to the site (still some to come), DNN is doing DNN Summit Mad Libs, and now we’re announcing our keynote speakers!
Announcing DNN Summit Keynotes
Yes, that’s keynotes with an “s” because there will be two keynotes. This year we’ve extended the conference to 2 days for more sessions, content, time for networking, and awesomeness. Two conference days provides the time for two keynotes and that’s exactly what we’ve lined up.
We’re excited to announce that DNN’s new CEO, Andy Tryba, will be giving the first keynote and the original creator of DNN, Shaun Walker, will be giving the second. As you can imagine, we are happy to have these two individuals headlining the event!
If you don’t know much about Andy Tryba or Shaun Walker, check out their bios:
Andy Tryba has spent the last 15 years as CEO of multiple successful startups, Director of Strategy at Intel Corporation, and advisor to the U.S. White House on the future of jobs and engineering talent.

Andy passionately believes that by enabling high-skill job growth, we can raise the standard of living across the globe. He received a Bachelor of Science in Engineering from the University of Illinois and a MBA from Rice University.

A Season of Change
If you’ve been keeping up with things in the DNN Community lately there has been a lot going on to say the least. This season of change has stemmed from the recent ESW Capital acquisition of DNN Corp, which brought new leadership at DNN with it. Since taking the helm as CEO of DNN, Andy has stated he’s putting the focus back on the community, strongly promoting open source, and focusing on growing the ecosystem. His keynote should be a great one!
