2017 has been a busy year for us, as we have attended several conferences alongside developing our products, hiring several new staff and moving offices. We thought it would be a good idea to share what we have learned, so this month we will be publishing a series of articles on the technical knowledge we have gained this year.
In October we attended the JavaOne conference. We took away a lot of information about the latest features of Java as well as tips on writing better code. A full list of our write-ups can be found here. We will also be attending the Devoxx conference in Belgium this month. If you can’t make it but still want to hear about the latest developments in tech, we will be writing up our key takeaways.
As well as attending conferences we have been working on developing new features for our products and working on new projects. For example we will show you how we implemented document scrolling for mobile browsers in our PDF to HTML5 converter, and how we created an interactive chatbot which allows us to control branch permissions on BitBucket from inside Basecamp.
What new technical knowledge have you gained in 2017?
IDRsolutions develop a Java PDF library, a PDF forms to HTML5 converter, a PDF to HTML5 or SVG converter and a Java Image Library that doubles as an ImageIO replacement. On the blog our team post about anything interesting they learn about.
