== 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.

Whitni Watkin’s carefully curated set of hard skills, spanning
ILSes, languages, and operating systems, allows her to thrive as a web services engineer at one of the United States’ largest technology corporations, serving over 100,000 customers worldwide. But it is Ms. Watkins’ passion for creating empathetic communities at the intersection of technology, libraries, and education that set her apart as a thoughtful technologist with an uncanny ability to understand not only computer systems but also the social systems in which technologists work. This passion has led her to work with Girls Who Code, to establish Boston’s LibTechrs meetup group which is open to all with an interest in technology, to lead the Massachusetts Library Association’s technology group, and to encourage women to enter technology fields and to feel accepted and confident in those fields. A sought-after public speaker, having spoken at Electronic Resources & Libraries, Code4Lib, and ALA Annual and MidWinter, as well as many other conferences in the United States and Canada, including as Keynote at EBSCO Presents, Ms. Watkins would craft and deliver a keynote that brings us together from our diverse viewpoints and ready us for the conference for people who code for libraries.
