Tracey Jaquith

See Tracey’s talk: “How a Denosaur 🦕 is making it so Everyone Can Code” (JS + Deno & democratizing coding) at this year’s online event November 13th.

Tracey Jaquith TV Architect

Tracey was the founding coder and system architect for Internet Archive in 1996. Recently, she rewrote Archive’s TV recording system to an opensource single server system, capable of 75 simultaneous 24×7 channels, made the TV site “full stack”, and
brought website to “version 2”.  Tracey currently focuses on dev ops, video, audio, and AR/VR/3D. She is leading the Archive’s conversion to Docker and Kubernetes.

Tracey is on the development team for the Swartz-Manning Virtual Reality Destination.

Tracey holds degrees in computer science from Cornell University where she focused on machine vision and robotics.

Outside of work, she has worked on political campaigns and is a road biker, seamstress, video producer, wannabe guitar player, and time-lapse digital photography enthusiast. She adores her longhaired, beautiful, clawed ball of fluff at home and defies her diagnosed cat allergy. Tracey Jaquith @tracey_pooh

Tracey will discuss the Internet Archive’s ultra-modern javascript and docker/containerization.

Tracey is transitioning IA’s TV and A/V processing (back-end) to javascript and will show new and interesting ways to setup modern JS with a “light touch” and get going really quickly.

On the container side, she setup a new way to allow people to do arbitrary archive item processing in any coding language repo, auto-building a docker image.

For examples, Merlijn is replacing IA’s OCR tools with a python3 based repo and toolset;  Tracey & Jake moved a new audio segment tagger (“is this part of the audio speech or is it music?”) to python3.
