On our nanoc based website: in ruby using prawn:
https://github.com/FOSDEM/website/blob/master/lib/helpers/pdf.rb

There are quite a few settings that could be tweaked, only after FOSDEM 
did I take a closer look at it and made the a3 one somewhat more 
suitable. More should be possible by playing with the code.


I also wrote a python/latex proof-of-concept for the booklet 
(post-FOSDEM). It is built with the idea that a full day should fit 
vertically on a page; see attached (in a5).
The booklet code is not in a public repo; but I doubt that is intentional.


If you have ideas or want to get involved, just shout.


Kind regards,
Tias
