A number of the Paremus team  will be attending OSGi DevCon and EclipseCon next week and we are looking forward to the all of the great OSGi content and exploring the new venue in Boston.

If you are attending then you may be interested in the opportunity to book a 30 minute one on one slot with Neil Bartlett.  And the great news is that the charge for this is zilch / zero / nada – yes that’s right, no charge at all.


OSGi Community Event 2012 Underway

The OSGi Community Event 2012 kicked off today in Ludwigsburg, Germany, co-located with EclipeCon Europe.  Richard Nicholson, Paremus CEO and OSGi Alliance President thanked everyone for joining us and for the EclipseCon teams excellent support in setting up and running the conference.  This is the first year that the OSGi Community Event has co-located with EclipseCon in Europe, following on the established formula of OSGi DevCon and EclipseCon in North America.

Over the next 3 days there will be more than 25 talks focused on OSGi, ranging from embedded to enterprise, tooling to OSGI and the Cloud, plus some user case studies. There will also be 1 0r 2 OSGi BOFs and an exciting schedule of entertainment laid on by the EclipseCon Europe team. It looks set to be a great conference.

If you are at the conference and would like to find out more about the OSGi Alliance then be sure to come by the Alliance stand (opposite the Power Up lounge) on street level.  This will be manned in all the breaks during the conference by different members of the Alliance and they will be pleased to answer any of your questions.

Neil Bartlett has a couple of talks during the conference so be sure to look these up on the schedule if you will be with us in Ludwigsburg.

Hope to see you there.

OSGi DevCon 2012 is underway.  The first day of the conference was all tutorial based and Neil Bartlett (aided by Gustavo Morozowski and Peter Kriens) gave a tutorial on “Mastering OSGi with Ease” to a packed room of 80 or so conference attendees.

Neil was also short listed for Bndtools in the Best Developer Tool category at EclipseCon.  Unfortunately he wasnt the overall winner, with the award going to the more than worthy Chronon Debugger, however making the final three from a submission list of 48 is a indication of the importance of Bndtools – well done Neil (and the other Bndtools contributors).

Day 2 of the conference is just starting and there are plenty of OSGi talks and presentations along with the OSGi BOF this evening.  For those of you who arent able to make it to Reston this evening for the BOF at 7pm the OSGi Alliance will be providing a live video and audio stream of the BOF via Ustream. You will be able to access this from the OSGi Channel here. We hope to be able to take questions from remote attendees via Twitter using #osgibof.


OSGi Community Event 2011 Over for Another Year

What a great couple of days this week at the OSGi Community Event 2011 in Dramstadt.  There were lots of great presentations and plenty of opportunity to network with everyone there. Our hosts, Deutsche Telekom, were great providing great meeting facilities and ensuring we were all fed and watered well.

All of the slides from the presentations at the event are now available from the OSGi Alliance web site. These include the ones from Richard and Neil which can also be found below. The video of the demo from slide 21 of the above slides can be found on YouTube.
