LabVIEW Hacker Session Tomorrow!

A couple of weeks ago, Davis wrote about LabVIEW, LabVIEW Hacker, and his experiences with both. We’re excited to announce that we’ll be hosting a half-day session with Sam Kristoff, founder of LabVIEW Hacker on November 5 from 2-6 p.m. PST. No prior experience is necessary, and software will be provided. There will be chipKIT hardware on loan, and we’ll learn the basics of LabVIEW.

LabVIEW is a graphical programming platform that helps its users design, test, and measure within systems, whether large or small. Its ability to interface with a wide variety of existing software and hardware makes it ideal to work with.  In our half-day session, we’ll be looking at an introduction to graphical programming interfaces, doing a walk-around of the LabVIEW ecosystem, look at demo projects, learn how to modify and share our own projects, and integrating LabVIEW with existing hardware.

Sam Kristoff, an NI applications engineer, founded LabVIEW Hacker. LabVIEW Hacker creates tools that make it easier to interface with various devices. The libraries are add-ons for LabVIEW, and there are a lot of different sample and user-submitted to projects to look into.


Digilent also sells NI academic hardware, in case you want to delve into that. You can find the NI products we sell in the special category on our website. To see what’s new or coming up, check out our New Product and Coming Soon sections.
