“Meet the Masters” is a series of seminars tailored to improve the skills of the active software professionals. The series is a new, more dynamic and focused format that replaces the famous Muffin Conference.

Peter is a very experienced developer who worked since the eighties for a large number of international companies like Ericsson, Intel, Adobe, etc. helping these companies in their, at the time, object oriented software development. In 1998 he lead the Ericsson team to develop the OSGi specifications for a home gateway. In 2001 he became the specification editor and technical director of the OSGi. A very large number of novel concepts in today’s OSGi were initiated and developed by him. In this capacity he consulted companies and gave many presentations world wide. His favorite work is still writing the actual code of working systems.
Based on his professional experience, he shared what is the definition of IoT, what are the specific problems for IoT software (size, updates, dynamism, drivers, remote, security, devices, sensors, actuators, control loops, rules, protocols). Pittfals (enterprise mindset, software evolution, multiple versions in the field, …), the IoT Architecture, OSGi, Implementations: OpenHAB, Qivicon, SMA, and others and of course there was time for Q & A from the audience.
