National Instruments to hold programming Developer Days across Europe

April 01, 2015 // By Graham Prophet
National Instruments has announced a series of dates in April and May 2015, and is inviting engineers and scientists to improve their graphical programming skills by attending LabVIEW Developer Days, each of which is a free, one day professional development event.

To be held in 12 locations throughout Northern Europe, as well as providing in-depth technical presentations and valuable programming tips for new and experienced users, LabVIEW Developer Days also gives attendees the opportunity to network with fellow programmers.

By choosing from two tracks, depending on experience, attendees tailor the day to suit their individual needs. The Intermediate track is created for programmers who are new to LabVIEW, offering guidance on how to personalise the environment to accelerate productivity, together with best practices for code packaging. Alternatively, more experienced users will choose the Advanced track, featuring topics such as data communication for scalable systems and how to improve code quality through automated code analysis.

Applicable to any measurement or control system, LabVIEW software integrates all the tools that engineers and scientists need to build applications in dramatically less time, by providing a development environment for problem solving, accelerated productivity and continual innovation.

The Keynote presentation at the start of each LabVIEW Developer Day, entitled “You and NI Will Prepare for the Future” demonstrates how NI’s intuitive technology is used to address the engineering challenges of today and the future.

Attendees at each of the 12 events can take the NI Certified LabVIEW Associate Developer exam, the first step in the three-part LabVIEW certification process, also free. There is also the option to take advantage of a technical preparation session for the next level of professional proficiency, the Certified LabVIEW Developer qualification. In addition, every attendee will receive a voucher for 50% discount towards any NI training course in 2015.
