Masterclass on OSGi

Learn OSGi from Neil Bartlett and Peter Kriens

This is your unique opportunity to learn OSGi from two of the top OSGi experts in the world during a 4 day masterclass. Neil Bartlett is the author of bndtools and wrote numerous articles about OSGi. He has trained more people than he cares to remember. Peter Kriens is an OSGi Fellow has been one of the key technical drivers behind the OSGi specification since day one. For some of the masterclasses Peter is only present the last day.

A masterclass provides an opportunity for experienced OSGi developers to take that extra step. A masterclass goes beyond the Hello World examples and will discuss go deep into how to design OSGi applications as well as discuss how to move existing applications onto OSGi. Neil Bartlett will take the lead for the first three days going through an extensive course in using OSGi. Peter Kriens will join at the end of the third day to share his experience discussing use cases from the members. Together Neil and Peter as teachers will provide deep insight in the practical day to day problems as well as providing the rationale why certain things are done the way they're done. If you had questions about OSGi, bnd, bndtools, or service oriented design, then this is the forum to come to.

The format of the masterclass is for the first day driven by using bndtools to build real use cases. The masterclass will address the following subjects:

  • Core OSGi service design
  • GUIs with OSGi (Eclipse, Vaadin, Swing)
  • Distributed/Clouds with OSGi
  • Persistence with OSGi
  • How to move existing applications to OSGi
  • ...

The last days with be very much driven by use cases from the attendants. Based on the experience of the prior days we take real world problems and discuss how they can be solved the best way with OSGi.

We are targeting this masterclass at developers and architects that are skilled in Java and have sufficient experience with OSGi to write simple bundles.

All participants will receive a certificate declaring their attendance signed by an OSGi Fellow.

The size of the masterclass is limited to 20 participants (minimum number of participants is 8).
