It was fun to meet people and watch the great pictures they took- you can see them all on our facebook page . This was the first year that Oracle World and JavaOne exhibit halls were co-located, and we were really nervous about it. But it worked out better than expected, the traffic was a mix of our usual developer crowd and some business users which was a welcome surprise. We hope you had fun at...

iText Oscon 2017 - wrap up
After our first visit to OSCON last year, we re-attended the event in Austin last week. The show was again a great chance for us to get back to our open source roots.
