Last week I was in Munich, Germany for the 2007 OSGi Community Event as well as a face 2 face OSGi Enterprise Expert Group meeting.
The OSGi Alliance had held congresses in the past (2005 and prior) but did not hold one in 2006. This year we tried for a smaller and more intimate event. I think it was a great meeting. 100+ people over the span of two days heard many interest presentations on OSGi technology. Some sessions were more business oriented and some more technical. It was a pretty decent blend. You can view the presentations online.
Overall the Community Event was an excellent complement to the OSGi sessions at EclipseCon and JavaOne each year. I am sure the OSGi Alliance will have another Community Event next year and I hope to see you there!
