This Weds: Come see us at Providence Geeks!

Later this week, Tizra's presenting at the Providence Geek Dinner:

Wed., Dec 17
5:30-9pm
AS220, 115 Empire St., Providence, RI

We'll be demoing new features of Tizra Publisher, and discussing some of the mindblowing work our CTO Francisco Rosa has been doing behind the scenes. We've been big fans of the Geek Dinner since its early days (we gave a sneak preview of our software at one of the very first ones) and hope we'll see you there.

PS: We also hope you'll bring something for the Geeks for Good canned food drive!

A key reason? We start with the "dreaded PDF" files publishers already have, which means…

Tizra doesn't require an investment in high-priced technology or legions of IT helpers. Presses don't have to convert files to a more flexible XML format or invest scarce resources in custom-designed software.
