Programming Languages:
Fluent in LabVIEW, know enough to be dangerous: C, C++, and Java



Used LabVIEW Since:


Applications Areas:
I am a LabVIEW expert, my customers are domain experts. I help them figure out the disconnect between what they are telling LabVIEW to do and what they actually want LabVIEW to do. That said, I have worked on software for medical devices, oil & gas, data visualization, automotive, manufacturing tests, etc.
I also teach LabVIEW courses for National Instruments and deliver workshops via DSH-Workshops.
I specialize Source Code Control, code refactoring, good software engineering practices, helping people go from lone wolf to working in a team





I was born in Mexico City, and when I was a kid I decided that there could not be anything cooler than being an engineer.  I came up with a "master plan" on how to get there. I went to a full immersion French high school where I graduated as an Electronics Technician and got awarded a scholarship to attend a private university. I graduated from ITESM-CEM with a B.S. in Electronics Systems Engineering (the closest thing in the US would be Computer Engineering).


National Instruments hired me right out of college and I moved to Austin, TX.  I worked at NI for 6 years and then left to get my Masters in Electrical Engineering specializing in Medical devices at the University of Texas.


While working on my Masters, people found out that I knew LabVIEW, and next thing I knew I was being paid to work on LabVIEW projects.  I realized pretty quickly that not only was I good at it, but I enjoyed it a lot. So, I started my own LabVIEW consulting company (Delacor) and I have been doing that since 2006.


I am the lead architect for the Delacor Queued Message HandlerDQMH is a free toolkit available through the LabVIEW Tools Network and it won product of the year award at NIWeek 2016.


In 2019, I started collaborating with Steve Watts and Joerg Hampel on delivering "Pragmatic Software Development" workshops via DSH-Workshops. I routinely present at NIWeek, CLA Summits, and GDevCon. A list of presentations and links to videos can be fount in the media section at the Delacor website.


When I am not doing LabVIEW, I do pottery for fun.
