Andromeda Yelton

Re-nominating last year's runner up in the keynote speaker voting and yanking/modding last year's short description. Formerly a developer with Unglue.it, she recently left full-time work there to work to help people learn to code. Member of the LITA Board of Directors and advisor for Ada Initiative. Andromeda Yelton

Mark Matienzo

Mark is the director of Technology at DPLA. He is however much more than that. He has worked tirelessly as an archivist and technologist solving many problems in the library domain. While his leadership style shows up through service. It is time to actually listen to him for more than his oft moving 5 minute Lightning Talks. Mark Matienzo

Ed Summers

Linked Data at LoC. Linked Data at MITH. need I say more? Ed Summers

Kam Woods

Research Associate & Adjunct Faculty at University of North Carolina at Chapel Hill.

Kam is currently developing modified open source digital forensics tools for digital archivists. He works with archivists, librarians, forensics researchers, and other development groups to identify core needs in analyzing and preparing digital content for preservation -- specifically needs that can be addressed using existing high-performance forensic technologies (with a little tweaking). He is also interested in developing datasets and teaching technologies to support education and professional training in digital archiving. He can give a great talk (I know from 2014 ALA) & I'll bet would have some great tech & social insides for Code4Lib
