Using Python to validate file conversions

I'd like to discuss a process I used to validate the conversion of pages in a PDF file to HTML using Python and PIL.

The business purpose was to reliably convert PDF ebooks to HTML in order to easily display and search the data from within an HTML5-based ereader.

My presentation would include an explanation of the process, some discussion about the tools used and images showing each step of the process.

I've set the location to Chegg, Inc's corporate office but left the date open. Chegg is always open for Meetups and usually offers free food and drinks.

Anyone date preferences?

    I tried recording the audio and video but only the audio was successful. Does anyone want me to host the audio file?

    I'm going to attempt to record the presentation and audio. If I'm successful, I'll post a link to it after later this week.

    I am not able to attend. I hope someone can post some notes/video of this presentation. Seems to be a very interesting topic.
