An upcoming PDF Liberation Hackathon is aimed at raising developers' skills in unlocking data from PDF sources. The hackathon will be held onsite in Washington D.C. and in San Francisco on Jan. 17 - 19, 2014, while international developers can also compete remotely. ProgrammableWeb spoke with organizer Marc Joffe about how API-focused developers can participate.
Late last week Google announced the release of version 3.0 of their Google Documents List Data API. This latest release addresses several feature requests filed by developers and also aims to improve speed and stability of the API itself (our Documents List Data API Profile). The most notable detail in this release is the ability to upload and download files in PDF.
