The East Coast’s largest developer & software engineering event

DeveloperWeek New York 2020

DeveloperWeek New York will be hosting thousands of online attendees across 60+ keynotes, workshops, conference sessions, and a 2-day Virtual Expo.

2020 will be our first time attending DeveloperWeek New York, billed as “the East Coast’s Largest Developer Conference & Expo”. Of course, since it is 2020 this will be a virtual event due to COVID-19.

Even though it is a virtual event, we’re still excited to be there. We’ll be presenting a demonstration on optimizing your PDF workflows by making use of two iText 7 add-ons: pdfOCR and pdf2Data.

Speaking of optimization, we’ll also be presenting a first-look at our next iText 7 add-on: pdfOptimizer, which as the name suggests will reduce the file size of your PDFs based on the options and compression levels you define.

We’ll also be giving demos of iText DITO, our user-friendly template-based PDF creator which offers low-code enterprise-grade PDF generation.

Don't miss our amazing session & your chance to win a Millennium Falcon Star Wars Lego set in our virtual booth raffle!

Dev Week NY

Join our live talk: "Search and Extract: Optimized document processing with iText pdf2Data and pdfOCR"

In this talk we will demo an optimized PDF workflow using pdfOCR to recognize data in PDF documents, and pdf2Data to extract selected data from your OCR search.  The beauty of using pdf2Data in this way is it can pick up exactly where pdfOCR leaves off, allowing you to both recognize and extract all kinds of data from PDF documents that would otherwise be inaccessible.

pdf2Data is our iText 7 add-on for smart data extraction from PDF documents. It’s tailored especially for extracting hard to reach data locked inside PDFs, and it fits neatly into the iText 7 ecosystem. The cherry on top? Anyone can quickly create a template for data extraction using the sleek user interface, with no need to tediously define document structures programmatically. Let the template designer assist you in creating your data extraction templates; no coding required!

If you haven’t tried it already, we’d like to give you a quick tour of its capabilities, while also demonstrating how it’s a great companion for our pdfOCR add-on.
