Demystifying OSGi - Java Colombo Meetup - 24 January 2013

The 6th Java Colombo Meetup [1] was held on 24th January 2013 (Last Thursday) at WSO2 premises. The topic on that day was "Demystifying OSGi" and it was presented by Sameera Jayasoma and Pradeep Fernando.
It was the second time I participated for this meetup. Both Sameera (@sameerajayasoma) and Pradeep (@pradeepfn) presented really well and they answered every question asked.

I joined WSO2 recently and we also had internal training sessions on OSGi & OSGi-based WSO2 Carbon Platform [2]. I would say Sameera and Pradeep are experts on OSGi.
Following is the presentation. You can also go through it to get an idea of OSGi.

Here are some photos of the event!
