Sean Tracey

Developer Advocate


Sean is a Developer Advocate at IBM, largely focussing on the combination AI, IoT, and Cloud Computing technologies.

Sean has spent his career trying to avoid getting ‘proper’ jobs, and as such has had a hand in making a variety of fun and interesting projects, including a singing statue of Lionel Richie, wearable drum kits, chopstick bagpipes, time-telling hats, and a life-sized Elvis Presley robot, to name only a few.
