zur allgemeinen Information veröffentliche ich hier in dieser neuen Rubrik jeweils die LabVIEW User Group Leader Mails, die ich quartalsmäßig von NI geschickt bekomme.
It has been another very active quarter for LabVIEW User Groups. In just the past three months, more than 20 new User Groups have been added to the LabVIEW User Group Directory! There are now more than 75 registered LabVIEW User Groups located in 18 countries around the world.
Download User Group Presentations
There are three new presentations available for download to LabVIEW User Group Leaders only. These presentations were given by NI engineers at NIWeek 2004. They include PowerPoint files and demos. Download these presentations for your upcoming meetings to learn about some new technologies and save the time of having to build your own!
Refactoring LabVIEW Programs: A Systematic Approach for Improving Existing VIs - Do you need to add features or debug a program with a difficult-to-understand source? If so, you might consider refactoring the code. In this presentation given at NIWeek 2004, you will learn how you can refactor LabVIEW programs efficiently in a controlled manner.
Software Engineering with LabVIEW - You have probably heard that using sequence a structures is bad, but do you know why? You know VIs need to be organized and easy to read, but do you know what makes a diagram easy to read? This presentation, given at NIWeek 2004, covers many aspects of VI design that become important when building large LabVIEW applications
Using Classes and References in LabVIEW - Learn how to effectively use classes and references in LabVIEW. In this presentation from NIWeek 2004, we discuss the history of attribute/property nodes, the object-oriented API to controls, relationships between classes, and elements of using control references. We also provide some tips and techniques for more effective LabVIEW development, and demonstrate these concepts with useful examples.
Promote Your User Group Meetings on NI.com
The National Instruments Seminars page has, for years now, listed upcoming User Group meetings that were led by National Instruments engineers. To make your User Groups more successful, next month, we will begin offering this opportunity to all LabVIEW User Groups. If you run your User Group independently, e-mail email@example.com with information about your upcoming meetings (place, date, time, and agenda) and we will promote your meeting on ni.com/seminars. LabVIEW users, visiting ni.com, will now see information about your meetings and have the ability to register for each meeting. You can find out who has registered and receive their contact information.
To get an idea of the type of information you want to include, see this meeting description from the Iowa LabVIEW User's Group (ILUG), a new User Group started in Cedar Rapids, IA.
Learn Best Practices from Other LabVIEW User Groups
To make their User Groups more successful, some groups have developed charters which distribute leadership responsbilities among the groups' members. While it may be difficult for one person to manage a group, a team of leaders can more easily keep the group running and prevent any one person from doing all of the work. Two of these groups have shared their charters here for other Community members to learn from. Read through the charters and use any ideas that can make your group more successful. Special thanks to ALVIN (Albuquerque LabVIEW Interest Network) and ALARM (Advanced LabVIEW Architects of the Rocky Mountains), the two User Groups who have shared their charters to help the rest of the LabVIEW Community.
As a registered LabVIEW User Group leader, you are receiving this quarterly mailing highlighting new downloadable User Group presentations and other news from the LabVIEW Community. If, at any time, you wish to be removed from this mailing, send an e-mail to firstname.lastname@example.org with the word REMOVE in the subject line.
