Plan Your NI Week 2010 Sessions for Large Applications

Active Participant

Once again, it's the most wonderful time of the year!  NI Week is just a few weeks away, and we're gearing up for what promises to be one of the biggest and best conferences yet.  So get your plane tickets, register for the conference, book your hotel room, and prepare for the Austin heat and the freezing cold of the conference center.

While it's true that I'll jump at any chance to shamelessly plug NI Week, it's also true that we have an impressive lineup of technical sessions this year.  I wanted to take a moment to highlight a few in particular that are especially relevant for wire-workers that want to improve their development practices or learn more about software engineering practices for small, medium or large applications.  Keep in mind that these are just some of the over 300 technical sessions we're having this year.

Great list Eli! One quick clarification: “NI Requirements Gateway – A Power User’s Session” will be presented by Mike Rakolta – VIE Test Software and Integration Group Lead).

Also, a plug for one of my sessions that I think Large LabVIEW Application Development subscribers might be interested in:

Long-Term Investment in Test: Building Common Core Test Platforms


As we build our way back from challenging economic times, many companies are investing in long-term test platforms. Gain an introduction to platform-based architectures, and learn about NI software and hardware used by industry leaders, how to implement these tools using NI software development environments, and hardware technologies including distributed/shared resources.
