When all is said and done I become a Guru ;-)

While reading the OSGi book from my colleagues I stopped by the dedication section on the first pages and found that Matthias dedicated the book not only to his wife and his daughter but also say thanks to me in this section, calling me his "personal Equinox Guru". Wow, I finally become a Guru... ;-)

Aside from not feeling like a guru at all and aside from the fact that there are hundreds or even thousands of developers on the planet knowing more about Equinox than I do - I feel somewhat proud to be mentioned in this book in such a nice way. :-)

Thank you, Matthias!

German OSGi Book

Colleagues and friends of mine have published a great introductory book on OSGi. Its called "Die OSGi Service Platform -Eine Einf├╝hrung mit Eclipse Equinox". Its completely written in German (but don't be afraid, they told me an English version is somewhere in the pipe) and the first book on OSGi on the planet. Wow. Make sure you get a copy and learn about OSGi. I can just highly recommend to read this great book!
