The usage of digital documents within an app affects basically every industry and use-case and now more than ever. Have you ever looked into incorporating documents into your app? There’s a lot to consider. And what about digital security? When it comes to thinking about the document lifecycle within an app, there are several things to think about:
- The in-app experience when working with multiple documents
- Integrating a viewer inside of the app beyond any built-in viewers
- Providing consistent behaviour across multiple browsers
- Providing customized UI for annotating PDFs, images, MS Office documents and videos
- Improving your search across multiple documents beyond just title and metadata

In this session you’ll learn about the importance of digital documents in today’s world and how to work with them using Javascript, React, Angular and Vue.
