== Terry Brady ==
Terry Brady is a software developer in Seattle working for the Georgetown University Library. Terry is the lead developer for DigitalGeorgetown. Terry is a committer for the DSpace repository platform. Terry has built applications for higher education, government, non-profit, and corporate institutions including LexisNexis and the National Archives and Records Administration--including the amazingly handy File-Analyzer. Strengthening communities is a passion of Terry's: he regularly participates in the DSpace Community Advisory Team meetings, and initiated the recent DSpace Users Group meeting hosted by Georgetown University in August of 2017. Terry does what all developers do, he writes code enthusiastically, and many times for no personal advantage, merely because it's work that needs doing, or is an interesting challenge. His work inspires that same approach in others; his observations on the work we all do will be equally inspiring.
David Brunton was hired is the Chief of Repository Development at the Library of Congress. In his time here, David has contributed to a number of important group efforts at LC, including: electronic Copyright Deposit, the Twitter archive, the National Digital Newspaper Program, digitization workflow, and more recently, crowdsourcing. David's first library job and his first coding job were both during his undergraduate years in the mid-nineties, and he has been doing one, the other, and both ever since. David is a fun and engaging speaker.
