LabVIEW 2020 Interfaces+AF webcast on Friday, May 1

LabVIEW Community Edition 2020 is now available for download. The commercial edition will follow sometime in May. We prioritized the Community release for all the engineers stuck at home under quarantine.

 

In light of this, it's time to talk about all the new features, and for Actor Framework, LV2020 includes a MAJOR improvement: interfaces. Interfaces are a companion feature to LabVIEW classes. I and Allen Smith will be presenting what would have been our NIWeek presentations as a webcast this Friday.

 

Two topics, back-to-back:
Intro to Interfaces (Stephen Loftus-Mercer)
Interfaces and the Actor Framework (Allen Smith)

Friday, May 1 10am, CDT
Join here: LabVIEW 2020: G Interfaces

Link will install MS Teams if you do not already have it.

 

To start learning about interfaces today, please see

  • the Fundamentals>>LabVIEW Object-Oriented Programming section of the LabVIEW 2020 shipping documentation
  • the shipping examples in
    examples\Object-Oriented Programming\Basic Interfaces
    examples\Object-Oriented Programming\Actors and Interfaces

If you are someone who already knows about interfaces from other programming languages and want to understand why G interfaces work the way they do, you may be interested in reading LabVIEW Interfaces: The Decisions Behind the Design.

That is the plan. New technology, so not certain, but initial tests look good.

I also can't make it (don't have Teams) so hopefully I can watch it on Youtube or something later.




Heads up! NI is moving LabVIEW to a mandatory SaaS subscription policy, along with a big price increase. Make your voice heard.

The link should pull Teams in for you to use for the webcast. I haven't tried it on a clean machine with the new version... I've just been told what *should* happen. If someone wants to try it and let me know?

It did let me install Teams, but I got the "something went wrong" message when Teams opened up. I assume it's because the webcast hadn't started yet. I'll give it a shot on Friday.

 

Also I might recommend changing the wording of the top post, it says "Microsoft Teams required" so I assumed I wouldn't be able to join.

I'm excited about this, but unfortunately won't be able to join because of a conflicting meeting.

 

If you can post the recording on YouTube that would be much appreciated! Then we can share it easily, too.

To anyone having trouble getting in, I was having some trouble joining but I was finally able to join as a guest via website, not through my Office account.
