NIWeek 2019

May 27th, 2019 by Christina in LabVIEW

I had a fantastic time at NIWeek 2019! It was great to learn things, meet people, and catch up with friends.

If you didn’t get to attend or there were sessions that you missed, the technical sessions are being posted on the NI forums. I especially want to highlight the Software Engineering Processes, Architecture, and Design track: “Powered by LabVIEW Champions and other advanced users, this track provided steps and key principles in software design, test, deployment, and maintenance as attendees were able to go through software engineering processes and how to effectively use LabVIEW.”

As is the tradition, NI announced a new release of LabVIEW: LabVIEW 2019!

Here are a few of the new features:

  • Maps and sets: new data types! If you want to learn more about them, check out the examples that Piotr Kruczkowski is posting on Twitter under the hashtag #LabVIEWSetsAndMaps
  • Highlight execution on subsets of the diagram: faster debugging!
  • Probes with history: easier debugging!
  • Case structure frames configurable to particular errors: simpler error handling!

NI also announced LabVIEW NXG 3.1. I’m currently the Product Owner for User Interfaces in LabVIEW NXG, and I’m excited about the capabilities of the latest release. For those of you already using LabVIEW, you might be interested in LabVIEW NXG’s Web Module, which enables you to easily create web applications that communicate with applications that you’ve built in LabVIEW. The “hands-on” session at NIWeek serves as a great introduction to WebVIs, and I’ve posted the materials for it on github. (You’ll also need LabVIEW 2019, LabVIEW NXG 3.1, and the LabVIEW NXG Web Module 3.1, but you can use the evaluation versions if you’d like).

I love how inspiring it is every year at NIWeek to see what people around the world are achieving with NI’s products. I hope to see you there next year!
