Bula! I'm back after several weeks of vacation (honeymoon in Fiji!) and I have some exciting announcements to share with all of you large LabVIEW application developers,and to those of you looking to become one!
I'd like to introduce a new 2-day class we just released, Managing Software Engineering with LabVIEW. This course is designed to walk developers through each phase of the software engineering development life-cycle and explain how to apply the appropriate tools and practices to LabVIEW. It begins with a look at source code control using Subversion, followed by requirements management, time/cost estimation techniques, peer reviews, code validation/testing, etc...
I spend a lot of my time explaining these tools and practices to customers and partners, but I know that it can be hard to really grasp how to integrate these into your daily routine after discussing the broad topic of software engineering for even an hour or two. We do have a lot of information available on this community and ni.com/largeapps, but if you want some hands-on experience with a certified LabVIEW instructor, I highly recommend that you consider taking this class.
If you're interested in learning about this topic, you'll probably also be very interested in two related classes:
