Make NXG dev team contribute to LV related open source projects

Status: Declined

Now that NXG is going to be discontinued, I guess the NI employees who were working on it will be re-deployed.

There question is to do what??


A part of the LabVIEW community thinks the failure of NXG was partly due to the fact that the team working on it didn't have enough love for LabVIEW-CG and/or not enough experience using LabVIEW-CG in real world applications.


So my suggestion to help them understand better what makes LabVIEW great and what could make it even better is to encourage/force them to spend a fix percentage of their work-time contributing to LabVIEW related open source projects.


What better way to enrich the LabVIEW eco-system and make them feel for LabVIEW at the same time?

The redistribution of NXG engineers is now complete. Thank you for your feedback. The advice that a dev team needs to know its customers is good advice.
