Meeting Topics


Presenter: Chris Cilino


Chris gave a small teaser during the August 1st meeting. 

  • GCentral is for programmers who need to find, share, or collaborate on reusable G code or software engineering tools
  • GCentral is a non-profit organization that provides a platform for G code packages and collaboration resources
  • GCentral is independent and driven by community experts

GCentral's aim: 

  • A LabVIEW community making the best version of itself
  • Improving our community's capability through collaboration

Specifically, GCentral wants to enable the LabVIEW community to make the best version of itself by removing barriers to

  • Discovering and using reuse libraries 
  • Contributing reuse libraries 
  • Co-developing of reuse libraries 
  • Confidently relying on reuse libraries

What to Expect When You are Expecting an Error

Presenter: Darren Nattinger


Connecting error wires across nodes on a block diagram is one of the most common brainless tasks performed by a LabVIEW programmer. Unfortunately, this often means that VI behavior in an error condition is a second thought if it's even thought about at all. This presentation will cover best practices with regards to the generation and propagation of errors on the LabVIEW block diagrams. You should come out of this presentation with the ability to write VIs that are not only functionally correct in an error condition but also quickly and precisely convey their exact error handling behavior.
