Mark Stephens

Mark Stephens founded IDRsolutions in 1999 to develop innovative PDF software in Java. He has been a key technical developer on the core libraries to parse PDF files and has documented much of what he has learnt on the Company blog. He is also a keen speaker and regular attendee at conferences such as PDF days and Java One.

He is very proud to tell people he actually has an MA in Mediaeval History, which is surprisingly useful for running a business developing technical PDF software.
