I'm involved in two talks at EclipseCon this year.
The first one is a 3-hour tutorial on Monday morning called Working with OSGi: The stuff you need to know. It's based on my upcoming book entitled OSGi and Equinox: Creating Highly Modular Java Systems. I'll be presenting with my co-authors Jeff McAffer (EclipseSource) and Simon Archer (IBM) as well as Chris Aniszczyk (EclipseSource). Should be loads of work. And loads of fun.
I'm also doing a talk on Tuesday afternoon called OSGi Best and Worst Practices. Again, I'll be presenting with Jeff McAffer and Chris Aniszczyk, plus Martin Lippert from it-agile in Germany. Martin really knows how to put the proverbial umlaut in OSGi! Personally, I'm hoping to focus more on the worst practices, since that's more fun. Got any ideas or pet peeves? I've already got one up my sleeve that will involve a shameless rip-off of my favorite Toothpaste for Dinner comic. Well, second favorite, behind this one. And, yes, I can recite the first 50.
Addison-Wesley will also be selling our book at the conference, and Jeff, Simon and I will have copies available to peruse. We'll probably give away a copy or two to some lucky winners.
The conference runs from March 22 - 25. See you there!
