Its the OSGi Community Event in Darmstadt, Germany next week at the Deutsche Telekom offices. The theme of the conference is the “Evolution and Success” of OSGi and there is an excellent selection of talks and panel discussions lined up for the two days (Tues 20th and Weds 21st September). There also looks to be plenty of opportunity for networking with community members, not least during the BBQ sponsored by SAP on the first evening.
Richard Nicholson will be busy with both his OSGi Alliance Presidential duties and also his talk on Tuesday “The Dawn of Composite Clouds – Why OSGi is the Most Important Ingredient in the Next Generation of Java Compute Cloud“.
Neil Bartlett is giving a talk on Bndtools, the Eclipse-based development tooling making it easier to work with OSGi, aptly titled ”Easy-peasy OSGi Development with Bndtools” which is on Wednesday.
Neil will also be taking part in the panel discussion “What Are the Major Tasks to Tackle Within the Next Two Years?” along with Alex Blewitt (Bandlem), Anish Karmarkar (Oracle), Christer Larsson (Makewave) and Karl Pauls (Luminis). The panel will be moderated by the OSGi Alliance Technical Director, Peter Kriens.
So if you plan to be there be sure to catch up with Richard, Neil or myself (Mike) either just to say hi or talk about all things OSGi over a Bratwurst or two.
If you havent booked yet then you can still register online or even turn up on the day armed with your credit card!
Hope to see you in Darmstadt next week.
