TriZPUG May 2003 Meeting: ReportLab - PDF made easy

Document Actions
The Triangle Zope/Python User Group (TriZPUG) will hold its next meeting on Wednesday, May 28, at 6:30 p.m. in Raleigh, NC.

We will be meeting in the DELTA conference room(s) at Venture III, who has kindly permitted us to use their meeting room, on NCSU's Centennial Campus. Directions to Venture III are below. Ian Sparks will be giving a talk on the ReportLab library.

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.

Directions to VERITAS:

VERITAS Software, 2530 Meridian Parkway, in Research Triangle Park. The Meridian Business Park is off of Highway 55, near its intersection with Interstate 40.

From I-40, take exit 278. At the bottom of the exit, turn LEFT onto Highway 55.

Turn left at the next light onto Meridian Parkway. Travel approximately one-half mile, to building 2530 on the RIGHT. Turn RIGHT, and park in the back. VERITAS is on the first floor.

Go to the Blue Ridge Conference Room, located past the elevators
