https://www.linkedin.com/in/chriscilino/I love seeing people "get it". You know... that first moment someone understands THEY CAN make the computer obey their commands (instead of the other way around). I've personally experienced and witnessed the sense of mastery LabVIEW gives to people to "take the measurement", "program the algorithm" or "create the application" they thought they never could. And I love it!
Through LabVIEW I've gained the ability to save time and money by turning the computer into the tool I needed it to be. And I want to help as many people as possible gain that same sense of mastery through this intuitive and powerful programming language.
During my career I've
