Peter Neubauer, Jayway ABPeter has been a founding member of OPS4J and, together with Niclas Hedhman, been involved in the initial discussion of the OPS (Open Participation Software) community model that is practiced at OPS4J.Peter has even been founding the Digital Meta Product Library (DPML) , where he even heavily contributed.
Interested in creating products with a sustainable community process and Open Participation especially. Trying to formulate the arguments of why industrial companies (i.e. non-IT companies) should invest money in OSS projects instead of paying consultants, and in the process create a good value proposition and sustainable business model for OSS projects.
Lately, OSGi based component development and system architecture is taking an increasingly central role in Peters engagements and activities. Peters current work focuses on realizing the promise of component based development by applying Agile Development techniques to drive through a comprehensive technology stack based on OSGi , Wicket , the Eclipse workbench (RSP-UI) and other groundbreaking technologies. To achieve that, he tries to persuade commercial entities to actively finance OSS in order to minimize the in-house code base and thus decrease maintanence, time to market and project costs. This resulted among other activities in initial committership of the RSP-UI proposal .
