Text Markup to PDF with Python

Python is brilliant at many things, but did you know it could also create beautiful documents from simple markup? Discover rst2pdf in this session.

Introducing: rst2pdf. This open source python project enables you to write simple, text-based markup and generate beautiful PDF documents with a single command. Using text-based content makes collaboration simple as source control tools can be used; it also allows content to be easily repurposed to different documents without reformatting. The styling can be changed independently and different formats produced from the same content source - it also supports syntax highlighting. This talk will also cover a bit about the state of the open source project itself and how people can get involved as users or contributors.
