OSGi DevCon March 2012, Reston Virginia

After a slow start we suddenly got a lot and very good submissions for the OSGi DevCon 2012 in Reston Virgina. Though this made the life of the program committee harder (thanks to BJ Hargrave (IBM), Neil Bartlett (Paremus), David Bosschaert (JBoss), and Christer Larsson (Makewave)!) it resulted in a fabulous program. There is really no excuse for not visiting this premier OSGi conference in the US considering we're also throwing in a free registration for Agile Connected and EclipseCon which are co-located!
