OSGi DevCon · Standard
Monday, 13:00, 20 minutes | Ballroom BC
In previous OSGi DevCon/EclipseCon we found that almost all presentations spent a significant amount of their time introducing the basic concepts of OSGi. This repetition wasted the time of the audience and left less time for the more unique achievements. For this reason, the OSGi DevCon program committee decided to have a session at the beginning of the conference that introduce OSGi for beginners. The other presentations will therefore not give an introduction and assume you understand the basics. So unless you are well versed in OSGi attending this presentation is highly recommended.
