The Newest CLD is ...

ME!  :womanvery-happy:
 
I haven't even seen the official piece of paper as I was at the hospital all day with my daughter (a co-worker knew I was waiting anxiously for the results and opened them upon my request) on my second try (first was a 70%) I passed ... with a 75%!  I don't care about the grade, I'll take it!  Actually, after asking for some clarifications on the first try grading, the 70% is a really stellar grade for someone that started teaching themselves LabVIEW last September (10 months ago) from the course manuals and never took the CLD prep course and only spends, oh, 10% of her time on LabVIEW.   Smiley Wink 
 
I work for an NI Alliance member company, my main motivating factor for taking the exam.  Maybe someday I'll think about writing a LV app on the side, but right now life is way too busy anyway.

Julie,
 
Good to hear that you passed.  Onlty 10% of your time on LabVIEW ?  What do you do with the rest of your time?

A little of everything software.  I consider myself a C++ engineer, but lately I've been doing database design work, PHP, Java, Lua, LabVIEW, NI-VLM administration, other license administration, sit on a few committees at work, on the LXI commitee (though my sub-committee has been inactive for a while).  I also do C#, VB, perl, oh heck, if it's out there and it's connected to a keyboard I've probably worked on it ... I also do existing driver support, assist our front line technical specialists, firmware, etc.
 
I've been a professional software engineer for 15 years.  I used to work at Microsoft, Lexmark and Diebold.   My user name is derived from my real name, thus it's not much of a secret (from http://www.ni.com/services/certified_labview_associate_developers.htm) that I work for Keithley Instruments now.

Ben/Diebold,

Actually, none of those ring a bell!  I was there from 1995-1998, never liked it there, too political.  When were you there?

P*

Well not anymore but they used to. They (the DGM-320 and the MPS-1020) were proprietary alarms systems.

-P

 "... When were you there?

 
1979-1982.
 
The DGM-320 was my first oppetunity to learn how to program. Mostly toggle ins, but I did use DBG a little. It was loaded from paper tape used core memory and used a ASR-33 as the logging device.

* The "P" operator indicates the start of a bad pun. Similarly the "-P" ends the pun. (Is that OK tst?)

Diebold 1974-75. Advanced ATM development. The top executives new how to run a vault company but were clueless about electronics and especially software. I think they estimated profit margins on vault doors by weight. Boy, did those rules of thumb fail for software!!!

Lynn, they were still clueless about software in the mid 90's.  Unfortunately for them, if they had a clue, they'd realize they are now primarily a software company.
