OSGi Community Event 2017

The OSGi Community Event 2017 was held in Ludwigsburg, Germany, October 24-26. Presentation slides and available video recordings of the sessions from the conference are available from the links in the schedule below.

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. OSGi Alliance announced its OSGi Alliance Leadership Awards and hosted its annual BoF, which featured lively discussion on OSGi.
