Recently we started creating numerous written tutorials and video tutorials to help you get started using the DynamicPDF Cloud API. We are happy to announce our first tutorial: Getting Started - DLEX and Designer.

This short tutorial illustrates how to create a simple dynamic PDF report. We first use DynamicPDF Cloud API's Designer to create a DLEX report template and associated JSON data. After creating the DLEX file, we illustrate using DynamicPDF Cloud API's dlex-layout REST endpoint to process the DLEX file and generate a PDF document.

The tutorial is designed as your "first steps" using DynamicPDF Cloud API, so be sure to check it out.

One of the critical features of the DynamicPDF Cloud API is its ability to scale based on demand automatically. Our team has been working hard to test out this feature over the past few weeks. We've been testing like crazy and have created over 1.2 billion test pages in the process. We're happy to report that auto-scaling is now up and running in all 10 of our geographic zones and performing quite nicely. We'll keep testing and tweaking things as usage increases to ensure things continue to run optimally.

Open source client libraries are now available for Node.js, .NET, Java and PHP. Client libraries make using the DynamicPDF Cloud API a breeze. We plan to introduce client libraries for other languages, such as Go, over the next few months. Our client libraries will also be available via package managers shortly to simplify the installation process.
