OSGi Community Event 2016


The OSGi Community Event 2016 was held in Ludwigsburg, Germany, October 25-27. Presentation slides of the sessions from the conference are now available from the links in the schedule below. Video recordings will be provided as they become available.

Co-located with EclipseCon Europe, the OSGi Community Event is the largest OSGi event of the year, featuring two full tracks, a BoF and an IoT demo.

The popular OSGi IoT demo returned, running a LEGO® train and track using OSGi specifications and OSGi enRoute. In 2016, the conference also featured a real-world case study of real German ICE trains using OSGi.

OSGi Alliance announced its first-ever OSGi Alliance Leadership Awards and hosted its annual BoF, which featured lively discussion on OSGi. If you have any comment on the BoF, please contact [email protected]
