OSGi Community Event 2018 Early Bird Pick & Registration Now Open

Congratulations to Lisa Nafeie from DLR, the German Aerospace Centre.  Lisa's talk, Visualization of OSGi based Software Architectures in Virtual Reality, has been selected as the Early Bird pick for the OSGi Community Event 2018.

We were lucky to have the opportunity to speak with Lisa to get some further background on her talk.  You can find our questions and her answers on the OSGi website.

We hope that this talk gives you a taste for all of the interesting OSGi content we will have at this year's Community Event in Ludwigsburg in October.  The OSGi Program Committee are busy reviewing all of the submissions to put a packed program together again this year.

If you are already planning on joining us you will be pleased to know that Registration for the event is now open and you can secure the best prices by booking early.

OSGi Presentation Recordings with BGJUG and Software AG

For those who follow this blog, you will know that we had an Evening of OSGi in mid-April hosted by BGJUG and Software AG. I am pleased to be able to share with you the video recordings that Software AG made at the meetup.  These have been posted on the OSGi Alliance YouTube channel and are available for you to watch.

There were two talks presented by the OSGi Alliance:
  • An 'Introduction to OSGi' by BJ Hargrave, OSGi Alliance CTO
  • A look at 'How OSGi Alliance specifications have influenced the IoT market' by Pavlin Dobrev & Kai Hackbarth (Bosch)
In addition, Todor Boev from Software AG presented 'OSGi and JPMS in practice' which discussed Software AG's experiences with OSGi and Jigsaw/JPMS.

Thanks once again to BGJUG and Software AG for arranging the meetup and allowing the Expert Group members to meet with the local Java community.
