Hope to see you there!
Title: ReportLab - PDF made easy
Reportlab is a python library for the creation of Adobe Portable Document Format (PDF) documents. This talk introduces the foundation of the library : the canvas object. We'll start with canvas primitives: drawing, writing text, importing graphics etc and go on to examine how the canvas exposes some of PDFs special capabilities. Finally we'll take a look at PLATYPUS (Page Layout and Typography Using Scripts), a high-level library built on the canvas which makes creating complex documents a breeze.
