A Software Engineering Approach to LabVIEW

Title: A Software Engineering Approach to LabVIEW

Authors: Jon Conway and LabVIEW Champion Steve Watts

One of my favorite books. Jon and Steve introduce their LabVIEW Component Oriented Design. Keep in mind this book was written long before LVOOP existed. The Components are what the rest of the LabVIEW community know as Action Engines. Regardless of what the implementation is, the concepts described in this book are still applicable today, plus if you have read Steve's blog, you will know that it is a very entertaining reading.

The book doesn't have very good reviews in Amazon, because unfortunately the publisher decided to go On Demand Printing and the images are poor quality

Still, I think this book belongs in any serious LabVIEW Developer's library. Extra value if you are a LabVIEW Consultant or Contractor.

I'm Organizing the GLA Summit!

For an opportunity to learn from experienced developers / entrepeneurs (Steve, Joerg, and Brian amongst them):

This remains one of my favorite LabVIEW books.  And although high-end LabVIEW apps have moved on from Components to LVOOP, the concepts are still sound and even the constructs are still applicable in many situations.
