NI LabVIEW Skills Guide

by Christina in LabVIEW, Training

One of the coolest new features of LabVIEW 2012 isn’t even in LabVIEW itself. I’m talking about the new LabVIEW Skills Guide. LabVIEW 2012 promotes this website on the Getting Started window, but you don’t need LabVIEW 2012 to access it.

The LabVIEW Skills Guide strives to be the fastest path to success with LabVIEW and National Instruments hardware. If you’re new to LabVIEW, it helps you learn the skills you need. If you’re training a colleague, it provides you with the tools to help. Even if you’ve been using LabVIEW for years, you may discover a new area of interest!

We’d love to hear your feedback on how well the LabVIEW Skills Guide works for you and suggestions for future enhancements.


LabVIEW Core 3 Training Videos

There is a channel on YouTube providing lessons from LabVIEW Core 3. Here’s the description:

This is a pilot project driven from National Instruments UK. Leave your comments, what you like or what you did not like, to guide future development of our course formats.

The third course of the National Instruments LabVIEW learning path, LabVIEW Core 3, increases proficiency by exposing you to best practices for designing, developing, testing, and deploying LabVIEW applications.

You need access to LabVIEW Core 3 course manual, to be able to complete the exercises and course project. If you have a current software contract (SSP) with NI, you can get all 38 modules in DVD and course manual for £179 (GPB), equivalent to 56% discount, directly from NI UK Office at sandra.taylor@ni.com or call us on +44(0)1635 572 400.

PS. As disclosure, I do work for National Instruments and I am passionate about training and improving skills of LabVIEW users.


LabVIEW Performance Course

People sometimes ask me “how do I make my VIs run faster?” or “how do I make my VIs use less memory?” I don’t have easy answers for those questions! There’s a lot of material to go over, including tools for identifying performance issues, general software engineering techniques, and specific LabVIEW implementation details that affect code generation and memory allocations.

That’s why I was excited to learn that there’s a new course available on LabVIEW Performance that is all about identifying and improving performance issues in your LabVIEW applications. Check out the course outline to see if it might be right for you!
