Training OSGi

OSGi is an industry standard set of powerful tools and specifications that make your software more effective, efficient and maintainable. Modular software development and the topic of Microservices are currently on everyone’s lips. OSGi has been doing just that for a long time and, if applied correctly, leads to a decoupled programming.


A key aspect of our training program will be to transport the concepts of modularity and dynamic. They are the foundation of OSGi. These paradigms are often denunciated as over complicated. This is caused by a requirement for a new way of thinking which is fundamentally different from a static and monolithic one. When this is achieved, a new level of code quality and maintainability of your Software and Architecture can be achieved.

As a member of the OSGi Alliance, in important working groups, we provide valuable background knowledge on specifications around OSGi. This includes not only the programming but also the topics architecture, product development, development processes and tooling.

Duration: 3 days

The course will combine presentations with a lot of hands-on sessions, to actively learn the use of BND. In order to simplify the development and ease the start, BNDTools will be used as and IDE.
