slideshare2pdf

I built this because some slideshare presentations can't be downloaded as PDF, like the ones from the Personal Finance for Engineers Standford course.

I want to read them in my Kindle so this program downloads the slides, converts them to landscape and puts them together in a PDF.

install

You need the golang toolchain to install the project. Then:

go get github.com/gonzaloserrano/slideshare2pdf

usage
