The Community Event is the largest OSGi event of the year with multiple full tracks, BOFs and other OSGi activities, including an OSGi IoT demo. It features talks on topics ranging from use cases and experiences with OSGi in enterprise, embedded, cloud and IoT environments, to specification updates and tutorials, meet-ups and other informal sessions.
Co-located with EclipseCon Europe 2016, attendees of each conference have full access to both programs.
OSGi provides a vendor-independent, standards-based approach to modularizing Java software applications and infrastructure. Its proven services model enables apps and infrastructure modules to communicate locally and distributed across the network, providing a coherent architecture. OSGi specifications have been extensively field-tested and are ready to use.
The Alliance provides OSGi specifications, reference implementations, test suites and certification to foster the OSGi ecosystem. Member companies promote adoption of OSGi technology, as well as collaboration among important ecosystem players within and outside the OSGi Alliance in order to provide the market with innovative solutions based on open standards.
Eclipse Equinox is the reference implementation for the OSGi Core specification, Equinox RT also provides some OSGi specification reference implementations and OSGi is used in a number of other Eclipse projects. We are pleased to have the Eclipse Foundation as a member of the OSGi Alliance.
The OSGi Community Event is the best opportunity of the year to meet with peers and colleagues to understand and discuss the benefits of OSGi and how it is being used in existing and emerging markets. Talks, tutorials , meet-ups and the IoT demo arm attendees with actionable information.
The OSGi Community Event is a unique opportunity to promote your organization to an OSGi-specific audience, as well as an audience of inherent OSGi users and potential users through Eclipse. Last year, the co-located events drew 600 attendees, including enterprise and embedded software architects, IT decision-makers and developers who are using OSGi or plan to use OSGi.
