GDevCon #2 Review

GDevCon is still the one and only independent, community-driven and non-profit graphical programming conference. GDevCon#2, which took place in Birmingham UK this year, proved that this event remains our absolute favourite of the year! Just as last year with GDevCon#1, all turned out better than we could have hoped for – thanks to all the beautiful people involved: Organisers, sponsors, presenters and delegates alike!

Reflecting on GDevCon #2

GDevCon #2 is wrapped. I’m really proud of the event we put on this year and its got me really excited about where we can take it next year. We’ve got plenty to think about and I hope that we can top it again. I’ve taken some really interesting thoughts away and I thought it would be interesting to share them (and help me by having to describe them!) Practical Talks Our target from the Read more…

The Graphical Tax

I’ve been thinking a lot lately about tooling. I’ve been getting my CI system running smoothly (ish, more on that later) as well as exploring another new language and working on open source projects on GitHub. I’ve realised that there are specific penalties that we have to face as LabVIEW developers that are largely down to the graphical nature of LabVIEW. In my head, I think of this as the graphical tax and thought it Read more…

WUELUG06: July 2019

WUELUG06, our sixth meeting, took us back to the HSE head-quarters. In spite of the summer break and travel bans, 18 #LabVIEWfriends went literally the extra mile to join us, two of them new members! The verdict: Excellent presentations, inspiring discussions, and a code review that turned into an LVOOP crash course. WUELUG06: LabVIEW Aficionados beating the summer heat! In case you don’t know, our user group has been awarded National Instruments’ User Group Innovation Read more…

Community Collaboration

One of the best things of LabVIEW (if not the best thing) is its awesome community. The readiness to help each other is second to none. In order to do our part, we started making some of our repositories public. And lo and behold, we now have the first collaborator! innofas GmbH, a company specializing in electro-technical vehicle components, utilises our our Generic Networking DQMH modules and agreed to give back to the community by Read more…

WUELUG05: SKZ

Another three months have passed since our last Wuerzburg LabVIEW Users Group meeting. Again, we were hosted at a company involved in the LabVIEW community, this time at the SKZ, the German Plastics Center. WUELUG05 SKZ Our LabVIEW friends at SKZ were kind enough to host us for the meeting. The Plastics Center (Kunststoff-Zentrum) was founded in 1961, right here in Würzburg. Since then, they have expanded to many other locations in Germany. In addition, Read more…
