President’s Letter, March 2019

OSGi Alliance is off to a running start and this will be a big milestone year for us as we celebrate our 20th anniversary!  We’re proud to have accomplished so much in those 20 years and look forward to marking many more milestones in creating open specifications that enable the modular assembly of software, and the use of highly performant microservices, built with Java technology. The road has not always been smooth but any bumps have served to help our organization refine its focus, approach and ultimately our offering to the market.

Our member companies are what has kept OSGi Alliance strong and focused on our mission. To them, I would like to convey a heartfelt thank you on behalf of our organization and the industry for their contributions, expertise, and above all, to their belief in the mission of the OSGi Alliance.

To learn more about all of the OSGi Alliance activities, please read on and mark your calendars for the OSGi 2019 Community Event October 21-24 in Ludwigsburg, Germany!
