LabVIEW 2016 and NI Technology Preview

Aug 11th, 2016 by Christina in LabVIEW, NI Week

NIWeek 2016 was awesome and inspiring. Thank you to everyone who attended, presented, or worked on the logistics of this amazing event!

The big news for LabVIEW was the release of LabVIEW 2016 with a new addition to the G language. (We don’t get to say that very often.) Jeff Kodosky, the Father of LabVIEW himself, presented on Channels (also known as Channel Wires). I wish everyone could have attended these sessions to see Jeff’s enthusiasm for this language construct, which makes communication between parallel loops easier to configure and more recognizable on block diagrams. And his plans to extend their capabilities could make them even more powerful in the future!

The most exciting aspect of NIWeek for me personally was the official launch of the NI Technology Preview. If you participate in the program, you’ll be able to see some of the things that I’ve been working on in recent years and provide feedback to shape the future of NI’s software platform.

Finally, the big news for NIWeek itself is that NIWeek 2017 will be held May 22 to 25, so attendees won’t have to endure sweltering Texas heat! I hope to see you there!
