Sessions to attend at NI Week 2018


It is that time of the year again. NI week is around the corner! May 21 – 24, 2018! My favorite time of the year.

I am preparing my list of sessions to not miss and I thought I would share it with you. I am happy to report that there are several DQMH sessions presented by people outside of Delacor. I have not even had the pleasure of meeting one of the presenters! I am happy because this means that our toolkit is used and appreciated by a lot of people out there. This might be why we have 23 five-star reviews, so far, on the LabVIEW Tools Network!

I am going to paraphrase what the LabVIEW Center of Excellence page is showing on its landing page regarding NI Week SEPAD. This year, like the last couple of years, will have a great Software track created by LabVIEW Champions. The name of the track this year is Software Engineering Processes, Architecture, and Design (SEPAD) track. There will be 44 sessions in rooms 15, 16A, 16B (and Ballroom G on Thursday). When in doubt, just pick one of those rooms and I can almost guarantee you will learn something useful for your LabVIEW development. The content is organized into mini-tracks for deep dives on key topics such as unit test, deployment, object-oriented design, and hardware abstraction layers. If you are a beginner, please do not be discouraged to attend the SEPAD.  The content ranges from informative and accessible to all, through intermediate and advanced levels.

Head to the NI Week app (you don’t have to log in to use it, but you do have to log in to create a schedule). Here are our picks for not-to-miss sessions:

DQMH related sessions (hint: you can search for DQMH in the NI Week app)

These presentations mention DQMH and their presenters have used DQM but are not DQMH focused

Don’t miss presentations by “seven-time undefeated World’s Fastest LabVIEW Programmer, now retired from competition”, Darren Nattinger!

These are sessions on unit testing, a topic near and dear to my heart:

Who knew I needed potatoes and candy bars to understand how the LabVIEW compiler works! Well, at least part of it:

Finally, new LabVIEW features that I want to learn more about.  Unfortunately, I cannot clone myself to give my presentation and go learn about Malleable VIs at the same time 🙁

See you at NI Week. Until then… happy wiring!
