LabVIEW Developer Days


What is LabVIEW Developer Days?
This complimentary, full-day event in an opportunity to deepen your skills and expand your LabVIEW software knowledge through technical presentations, product demonstrations, and collaborative sessions with software experts and fellow attendees. Learn about tips and tricks, application best practices, and how to leverage different features with LabVIEW so you can succeed with your project today and be prepared for future industry trends and project requirements. Gain confidence in your software development skills with the design principles and methodologies presented over the course of the day.


Who Should Attend?
Engineers, scientists, and programmers currently using LabVIEW and interested in further developing their programming skills. You can choose from different tracks based on your application and pick from sessions that cover intermediate to advanced concepts. LabVIEW users interested in a certification path to Certified LabVIEW Developer or Certified LabVIEW Architect can also attend as part of your expertise development and certification preparation.

Practical Techniques for Moving Beyond One Loop

Introduction to VI Scripting

    This session focuses on the Queued Message Handler (QMH), which is a foundational to many NI LabVIEW architectures. Learn methods for communicating among loops, stopping parallel loops, handling errors, and other key concepts. VI Scripting helps you programmatically generate, edit and inspect LabVIEW code. Learn how and why to use it and unleash the power of LabVIEW VI Scripting.

How to Make Eye Catching User Interfaces

Test Executive: To Build or Buy?

    The UI is normally the first, and often the only, part of your work most people see. Discover LabVIEW tricks to customise controls and create resizable front panels with splitters and panes and look into general UI guidelines to help you create professional-looking UIs for your deployed applications. What is a Test Sequencer? What are the best practices to create one in LabVIEW? Should you make your own test sequencer or use a test sequencer framework, like TestStand? This presentation shows possible implementations of test sequencers and their advantages and disadvantages.

Tips for Highly Productive Programming
Best Practices for Architecting Embedded Applications in LabVIEW
    In this session explore some simple techniques that can help you code quicker. Learn about little-known LabVIEW features, advanced functions and other tools that can help you save development time. Building an embedded application but not sure how to start?  Learn best practices for breaking down your embedded application into modules that run on FPGA, Real-Time, and user interface targets and recommended communication methods between them.

Demystifying LabVIEW Objects
Memory Management and Code Optimisation
    Many applications are over complicated because they try to avoid using objects due to misconceptions about LabVIEW objects. In this session we will covering the basics of object oriented programming. Learn how to improve the performance of your LabVIEW applications. We will explore the internal workings of the LabVIEW execution engine and learn how to use those principles to improve your memory usage.

Managing Large Projects In LabVIEW

Designing a Measurement System Using the Actor Framework

    Examine best practices for managing LabVIEW applications and discover how to effectively use the Project Explorer to organize code, documentation, and build specifications. See how you can implement source code control to improve team development. Get an introduction to the Actor Framework to build a plug-in measurement architecture that includes the use of a hardware abstraction layer.

How to Master the CLD Exam
LabVIEW Application Show & Tell
    This session will prepare you for taking the step towards being a Certified LabVIEW Developer. It will cover the exam format, the scoring model, hints at how to improve your exam technique and more. It's easy to become focused on our own industry and forget the wide range of applications where we can apply LabVIEW. In this informal session we invite you to share your projects and we will share the most innovative and quirky applications NI has seen to give a perspective to the tool we use and perhaps inspire your next project.
