Conference participants come to attend education sessions conducted by top industry experts, to be inspired about what they could do with PDF now and in the future, and to build their networks.
2013 marks 20 years since PDF was first released. In that time its become the worlds chosen electronic document format, said Duff Johnson, Vice Chairman of the PDF Association. Even so, many developers know very little about the power and flexibility of the format they use everyday, he said. For developers, the PDF Association Technical Conference is a great way to learn in a peer-to-peer environment; asking questions and bringing home lots of actionable ideas.
Beginning in 2006 with the PDF/A Competence Center, the PDF Association exists to provide software vendors with information and resources on the various International Standards for PDF to help them make the most of their investment in PDF technology.
