or . . . . how some of the basic principles of Johnny Appleseed (educate, motivate, promulgate, innovate) were achieved when we helped create and implement an OSGi-based application development competition at a top 10 science and engineering university. This presentation will summarize: a) the inception of the competition; b) the roles of the major participants; c) the process of educating the students and professors on OSGi; d) feedback from the students and professors on the process, the competition and their assessment of the OSGi environment; e) how the competition took advantage of other wider R&D activities in the university community especially for health/wellness technology, smart home technology and human factors research; f) some examples of the creative apps generated by the teams; g) lessons learned: how well (or not) the senior level and graduate level students in the competiting teams learned and applied OSGi development principles as well as implemented compliant apps; . . . and finally . . . h) how the lessons learned can be used to help promote and expand the adoption of OSGi in the wider apps development and software development communities.
