LabVIEW Development Tips and Tricks Webcast - Wednesday, October 6th at 11 AM

It's that time of year again...time for me to give a LabVIEW Virtual User Group presentation.  Last year, I presented tips and tricks to help you write faster VIs.  This year, I'm presenting tips and tricks to help you write VIs faster:

NI LabVIEW Virtual User Group: Tips and Tricks to Speed LabVIEW Development

Once again, my co-host will be Todd Sierer.   And yes, this is the same presentation I gave at NI Week 2010. 

And one more thing...I will be monitoring the twitter hash tag #LabVIEWVUG before and after the presentation.  So for those of you on twitter, that's one more way you can discuss the presentation and ask questions.

Hey Look, I'm Involved in an iPad Giveaway (Again)

It seems like everybody is winning iPads these days, and I'm helping them do it. First was the LabVIEW Coding Challenge at NI Week 2010. I easily defended my title as the fastest LabVIEW programmer on the planet, and the guy I beat got an iPad. (I wonder if they would have given me the iPad if I had taken a dive? I'm guessing not...)

And now, I'm helping judge the LabVIEW Examples Contest. To enter the contest, you must submit an example for one of the following categories:
  • Data Acquisition
  • File I/O
  • Math/Analysis
  • User Interface Controls
  • Games
  • VI Server/Scripting
You can submit your VIs from October 1st through October 25th. Our judging committee will choose finalists in each category, the LabVIEW community will choose their favorites, then Jeff Kodosky himself will choose the overall winner.

If you have any questions, please post them to the discussion forum on the contest community site here. Good luck!
