Certified LabVIEW Associate Developer Exam

NI certifications are industry-recognised credentials that distinguish expertise in using NI products for developing measurement and automation solutions. NI offers three levels of certifications for new, experienced and expert NI product users. Take your first step on the certification path by taking your Certified LabVIEW Associate Developer (CLAD) exam during the seminar.

Personalising the LabVIEW Environment to Accelerate Productivity

LabVIEW provides flexibility and the possibility to modify it's environment for every individuals needs. This provides every customer the option to optimize his Daily Desk to be more efficient and more innovative. This presentation will cover diverse modification possibilities starting with the Tools->Options Dialog through LabVIEW.ini and Quick Drop to using tools from the tools network.


10:15 Break

The Essentials of File Management with LabVIEW

Learn how to identify and avoid common pitfalls when developing an NI LabVIEW code base. Examine best practices for managing LabVIEW applications and discover how to effectively use the Project Explorer to organize code, documentation, and build specifications. See how you can use the Project Explorer to increase dependency control and how you can apply software configuration management strategies, such as implementing source code control, to improve team development.


Improving Code Quality Through Automated Code Analysis

The VI Analyzer is a powerful tool for code analysis and inspection in LabVIEW, with many pieces of core functionality included with LabVIEW itself. In addition to identifying style and performance issues, the VI Analyzer can also be used to detect problems that would be extremely difficult to find through visual code inspection, particularly across larger codebases. This presentation will cover a variety of topics related to the VI Analyzer--from the basics of its use, all the way to creating custom tests for your own specific code inspection needs. We will also discuss real-world scenarios in which the VI Analyzer was used to find (and in some cases, automatically fix!) well-hidden bugs in LabVIEW code.


12:00 Lunch

User Interface Tips and Tricks

The UI is normally the first, and often the only, part of your work most people see. At this session, discover LabVIEW tricks to customize controls and create resizable front panels with splitters and panes. Also delve into some general UI guidelines and techniques to help you create professional-looking UIs for your deployed applications.


13:45 Break

Software Engineering Best Practices for LabVIEW

Examine the typical development life cycle and best practices for programming with LabVIEW in a structured development environment to ensure that your LabVIEW applications are reliable, safe, and fault tolerant. This session will review configuration management, code change tracking and identification, requirements gathering, code architecture, proper style guideline adherence, code validation, dynamic code analysis, and professional deployment practices.


Effectively Building Proficiency with LabVIEW

Developer Days demonstrates many tips and techniques, but is this the only activity available to build on your proficiency this year? This session explores the many ways in which you can learn new skills with LabVIEW and discusses the most effective ways to increase, maintain and validate your knowledge.


Certified LabVIEW Developer Preparation Session

Learn about exam objectives, logistics, and resources; exam format and evaluation criteria; useful technical information, including development guidelines, tips and recommendations. Get an insight into the sequencer theme that CLD exam projects are based on and the LabVIEW design patterns and the timing methods that are suited to handle these projects.
