== Chris Bourg ==
== 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.

== Kate Deibel == Kate Deibel is the Inclusion & Accessibility Librarian at Syracuse University. An ardent advocate for usable and accessible technologies, her work focuses on disciplinarity, technology adoption, comics, and disability. Kate earned her PhD in computer science and engineering at the University of Washington in 2011 with a multidisciplinary study of the social and technological factors that hinder adoption of reading technologies among adults with dyslexia, and while working as a web applications specialist at the University of Washington Libraries she focused on ensuring that technologies are effective tools for both library patrons and staff. By challenging the assumptions that we make about accessibility and our patrons' experiences with library technology, Kate's work pushes us to be more empathetic, realistic, and creative when we design library systems.
