GDevCon #1

GDevCon#1 So, GDevCon actually happened!! Who would have thought that 10 software developers could pull off such a task and not only make it work, but have to change venues due to demand!! This blog post however is not about the event itself, or indeed the organising of it, it is all about ME! Just kidding, it’s actually a very short piece about my take away from the event and what it meant to me Read more…

Open Source LabVIEW – How To Contribute

Intro Open source software projects are making huge contributions around the world. They allow communities to pool their resources and achieve progress that couldn’t be reached by individual teams in silos. While there are open source projects in LabVIEW, it feels like a resource that we aren’t great at using as a community. Every project I’ve seen seems to handle things quite differently, and it can be hard to track down where to work. Since Read more…

Getting VI Analyzer Into Our Workflow

We have long known that VI Analyzer is a good idea – much like unit testing – people on the other side of adoption swear by it. We’ve found a few hurdles for mainstream adoption into our process, and I suspect yours too. 1. Understanding Why The first step in adopting VI Analyzer (and keeping that adoption going) is understanding why you are doing it! What I mean by this is you need to make Read more…

LabVIEW for Recruiters

LabVIEW for Recruiters Recently I have had many meetings/discussion with recruiters, hiring managers and procurement staff regarding LabVIEW and what iNU Solutions can offer to them as a company. During these conversations it became very clear that there is limited knowledge, understanding and/or experience of LabVIEW within these groups of people, take for example this conversation I had with a purchasing “engineer”: Me: Can you tell me why we weren’t selected for the final round Read more…

Refactoring: When Should I Create A SubVI?

I don’t write code in the best way the first time. No-one does. Instead, if we want to get to a state of clean code (readable, maintainable etc.), we often have to put specific effort into it. Martin Fowler’s Refactoring book summarises it nicely when talking about refactoring. You need two hats. One for adding functionality and the other for refactoring. Your process may have a nice point to change hats (I use TDD which Read more…
