  1. Develop With Creativity, Innovation and Productivity, 16th to 25th June
    Learn how you can improve your developing creativity, innovation and productivity through techniques and tools inspired by the LabVIEW Community and the LabVIEW Tools Network.
  2.  Expand Your Systems, 30th June to 08th July
    Creativity, innovation and productivity become even more important if you’re developing applications that must scale. Explore how you can address that need with the LabVIEW VI Analyzer Toolkit, LabVIEW Application Builder, Scalable Communication Methods and VI Scripting.


Ask the experts your questions during or after the presentation through a live chat.

Build Code. Get Answers. Gain Confidence. This series of webcasts help you achieve these goals with presentations on a variety of LabVIEW techniques, solutions from the LabVIEW Tools Network, and ideas from the LabVIEW Community for developing with creativity, innovation and productivity.


Personalizing the LabVIEW Environment to Accelerate Your Productivity

You have many options to personalize the LabVIEW environment for your individual needs and optimize your daily tasks to be more efficient and more innovative. In this session, explore a range of modification possibilities, from the Tools»Options dialog to LabVIEW.ini and Quick Drop shortcuts to LabVIEW Tools Network solutions.

Report Generation Methods From Toolkit to Template

Only an estimated 15 percent of Fortune 500 companies are prepared to use big data as a competitive advantage. Report generation goes a long way toward correcting this issue by making the results of your DAQ system consumable by others. In this session, examine the characteristics of an effective report, the most common report types and common software architectures for generating reports. Learn from interactive demonstrations how to convert your data “problem” into a data “opportunity.”

Presenter: Frank Lezu, Software Product Manager, National Instruments

Using the Project Explorer to Manage Files on Disks

Discover how to identify and avoid common pitfalls when developing a LabVIEW code base. Examine best practices for managing LabVIEW applications and learn how to effectively use the LabVIEW Project Explorer to organize code, documentation and build specifications and increase dependency control. Lastly, see how you can apply software configuration management strategies, such as implementing source code control, to improve team development.

Further your knowledge of distributed, more complex and bigger systems.



Data Communication for Scalable Systems in LabVIEW

With increased focus on Industry 4.0 and the Internet of Things, the communication between smart systems is gaining in importance. In this session, explore different methods and architectures for communication between multiple systems in LabVIEW with a big focus on stability, scalability and performance.

LabVIEW Application Builder Tips and Tricks

How many times have you created an executable and wondered what was going on behind the scenes? This session begins with the basic steps to create a simple executable and progresses to tips and tricks for configuring a build specification. Learn what makes up an executable, see how to include code that is not a dependency and examine other practical techniques. Also explore changing and adding components after an executable has been deployed.

Presenter: Samuli Bergström, Certified LabVIEW Architect

Improving Code Quality Through Automated Code Analysis

The LabVIEW VI Analyzer Toolkit is a powerful resource for code analysis and inspection in LabVIEW, with many pieces of core functionality included in LabVIEW itself. In addition to identifying style and performance issues, you can use the VI Analyzer to detect problems that are difficult to find through visual code inspection, particularly across larger code bases. At this session, explore a variety of VI Analyzer topics from the basics of its use to creating custom tests for your own specific code inspection needs. Also discuss real-world scenarios in which the VI Analyzer was used to find (and, in some cases, automatically fix!) well-hidden bugs in LabVIEW code.

Presenter: Darren Nattinger, CLA Principal Engineer, LabVIEW R&D

Introduction to VI Scripting Using a Practical Example

If you’re tired of repeating the same steps in LabVIEW and looking for ways to create applications based on a configuration from your customer, consider VI Scripting. In this session, dive into the basics of VI Scripting with a practical example of how it works and learn how you can use it to improve your LabVIEW environment.
