National Instruments held the contest for World’s Fastest LabVIEW Programmer again at NIWeek 2017. There was some good competition on the Expo floor where LabVIEW programmers from around the world raced to count how many times the letter e appears in a string, identify the number of repeating numbers in an array, and selectively output the sum of two numbers. Bryan Heslop from Endigit, an NI Alliance Partner had the best time on the floor.
The second round of the competition pitted Bryan against Sung Jin KIM from Korbi in South Korea, winner of the NIDays Korea Fastest Programmers competition. Sung Jin and Bryan went head to head in front of a large audience to complete similar challenges. Bryan advanced to the finals by beating Sung Jin 2 rounds to 1.
In the finals Bryan faced off against Robert Mortensen, 2016 World’s Fastest LabVIEW programmer and founder of Endigit. It was an intense battle with Robert defending his title on a tie-breaker question. Congratulations to our winners!
