__Generating Rich PDFs with Prawn__ by Matthew Bass

Prawn is a Ruby library that was developed with the goal of making PDF generation in Ruby easy and fast. It gives an order of magnitude speed increase over its predecessors like PDF::Writer. The markup is straightforward yet powerful and can be leveraged to generate very professional looking PDF documents. Join us for an introduction to the library. We will walk through several examples of how to generate various types of PDFs from both vanilla Ruby scripts and Rails applications.

Bio: Matthew Bass has been programming Ruby for over five years. He currently works as a freelance developer for Terralien and moonlights as an entrepreneur by building subscription-based web applications with Rails.
