OSGi Surgery with Neil Bartlett @ OSGi DevCon 2013

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.

Devoxx 2012


Neil Bartlett will be at Devoxx this week presenting “How to Make your Code OSGi Friendly Without Depending on OSGi“. The talk is taking place at 13.35hrs in Room 8 on Thursday 15 Nov.

It appears from the Twittersphere that there has been a good deal of interest and content around OSGi at the conference this week, including the use of Neil’s Bndtools project.  So if you are at Devoxx and would like to catch up with Neil to find out more about Bndtools, his OSGi training course, or anything OSGi or Paremus related then send him a tweet @nbartlett or drop us an email.
