Often a simple User-Story such as "As a user, I can download this as a PDF" can provide sleepless nights. How can we convert that carefully crafted web content into a PDF? This session will cover what tools are available to create PDF files in different ways and how you can use them in you application. We will also touch upon signing and tagging PDF files as well as accessibility concerns and whether it's worth creating a PDF from your content in the first place.

This talk exceeded my expectations, but after it, I'm very aware my expectations were not right to begin with. A very interesting talk, that will give you a good insight in how (and how not) to do pdf with php, what it is that makes it tick, and how you can start getting into it as a programmer, both creating pdf's from html as well as raw text. After already having created pdf's in a few projects beforehand, every answer I knew of was just only the introduction to this talk.

Very good 1.5+h overview on tools available for pdf generaton in the PHP ecosystem. I also liked the side dishes on the structure of pdf documents, encryption, signing etc. Well done Andreas!

And thanks to Zimmo and Bart for hosting and organizing
