OpenG – Committed to Green Engineering Since 2001

Posted on Saturday 23 August 2008

I read a funny rant today, green gone wrong, by JA Varnell. This got me thinking…

OpenG has been green since 2001! In fact, we’re known throughout the LabVIEW community for how green our VIs are :)

But, that’s not the only way that OpenG is green.  Think of all the energy (both mental and electrical) that is saved by not having to write these VIs yourself!  (Thanks, Antoine, for reminding me of this fact.)

    Very Good! But beware! The Green LabVIEW icon may become super intelligent and take over the rest of the pallet!

    JA Varnell: Taking over the LabVIEW palettes is part of the OpenG plan!

    hey… wait a second, all the people who code faster thanks to OpenG spend less time using their computers and therefore use less power ;)

    I loved the story about “the super intelligent shades of the colour Green” !

    Antoine: Doh! I forgot to mention that — I’m going to update the blog article and credit you with the reminder :) This was actually one of our “funny, but true” points that we made during JKI’s LabVIEW code reuse presentation at NIWeek 2008. Thanks for the reminder.
