OSGi and JavaScript

Session Type: 
Standard [35 minutes]

One of the real surprises in my career has been the emergence of JavaScript as an increasingly reasonable choice as a systems language. In this talk I'll make the case that it's time for the OSGi community to gather and start looking at creating specifications for JavaScript based implementations. The Orion team started with an OSGi-insired MicroService architecture and in the past year has grown to also include a plugin architecture that is closely aligned with both OSGi bundle metadata and lifecycle concepts. We will use Orion as an example to discuss areas that we think are suitable for standardization.
