PDF Camp Berlin

PDF Camp is a technical and hands-on event where we will work in groups to find answers to your PDF questions. If you have been to one of our previous PDF Hackathons or PDF Camps, this event will be very similar. Bringing your own laptop will be necessary; the idea is that you bring up your production problems and project challenges. When registering for this event, please add your preferred subjects/input. Based on your requests, we will address different topics in 3 to 4 hands-on groups.
