Introducing the JKI Software Blog

Recently, JKI announced the new JKI Software Blog.  I wanted to make sure that all of you, the readers of Thinking in G, knew about this great new resource on LabVIEW.  But, I also wanted to explain how the JKI Software Blog relates to this blog, Thinking in G.

Video of JKI’s NIWeek 2008 presentation on code reuse

( JKI and LabVIEW and NI Week )

We’ve just posted video of JKI’s sold out NIWeek 2008 presentation on Effective LabVIEW Code Reuse Strategies and Tools.

Delivering Sold-out NIWeek Presentations

( JKI and NI Week )
The JKI presentations at NIWeek 2008 were very popular -- the rooms were full to capacity while eager attendees were (unfortunately) turned away at the door due to fire safety concerns.  While the size of the audience is a good indication that people anticipated high-quality presentations, we were thrilled to received direct feedback from many attendees, afterward, who stated how much they enjoyed [...]

Maybe you didn't realize one of the following facts about *.mnu files: Tip: you can skip over this list, because it's probably completely [...]

Using XML Data in LabVIEW Just Got Easier

( Developer Tools and JKI and LabVIEW and XML )
As I've mentioned before, using XML data in LabVIEW is way too hard.  And, according to this poll, 7 out of 10 LabVIEW developers think so, too.  LabVIEW's built-in XML schema and support functions are not at all useful for generating and parsing XML schemas defined by others.  And, the various tools available to LabVIEW developers for generating and parsing XML schemas [...]

JKI and the LabVIEW Community

( JKI and LAVA and LabVIEW and NI Week and OpenG )

One the reasons that NIWeek 2007 was the Best NIWeek Ever was that during the NIWeek 2007 Alliance Day keynote, NI showed a slide called “The LabVIEW Community Online” (shown above) which included JKI’s logo! This slide displayed the logos of various LabVIEW community websites, including discussion forums, blogs, etc. I was extremely [...]

My NIWeek 2007 Presentations

One the reasons that NIWeek 2007 was the Best NIWeek Ever was that I got to present four times! I gave the following two presentations (I presented the latter at three different times):

Developing Commercial Software Applications in LabVIEW

The first presentation, “Using Free and Open Source LabVIEW Software“, was [...]
