I spoke recently with Alex Blewitt, OSGi Expert and Editor-in-Chief of EclipseZone, and Neil Barlett, OSGi Enthusiast, about OSGi. Neil has recently authored a series of articles on the topic. In this podcast, Neil and Alex talk about how OSGi is being used today and its potential for the future.
The podcast is here.
We recorded the talk in the registration area at EclipseCon. For effect, I thought it’d be cool to have a background hum of the excitement that pervades EclipseCon. I’m not sure the effect is quite what I was hoping for (especially since—other than the guy with the carpet cleaner—there really wasn’t a lot of buzz in the registration area).
Note that I’ve changed Neil’s title above per his request that he be labeled an OSGi “enthusiast” rather than “expert”. I question his choice given the quality of the articles he’s produced and his obvious depth of knowledge in the subject, but I respect his position.
On a related note, I’ve been working on the podcast feed. It now loads into iTunes, but for some reason it doesn’t show the recent podcasts. I’m still trying to sort out why it’s not working quite right. If anybody has experience with Atom feeds and iTunes, please feel free to impose your skills on me….
