EDuCation 2019


I am just back from the PDF Association’s annual event, the EDC (Electronic Document Conference), in Seattle. In short: I think it was a very good event and I am happy that we decided to have it in North America this year.

One thing that we (the attendees) came back to various times during the event is that PDF has many more features than currently being used and that it is important to educate users and developers – which made for the title of this blog post. Part of that mission is that from now on, this annual event will alternate between Europe (next year) and North America.
