Next Meeting: June 27, 2013 @ LinkedIn, Mtn. View
Topic: Using Python to validate file conversions
Comparing "reasonable likeness" between two file types is a daunting task and often relegated to human verification (read: a person viewing the two files at the same time). However when the expectation is to compare 50,000,000+ files, automation is the only feasible answer.This presentation will walk you through the steps and pitfalls I encountered while building an automated pipeline to validate the conversion of eTextbooks in the PDF format to HTML5 at Chegg.com. Of course, Python and PIL were the perfect tools to get the job done!
