Feedback Survey (and Thank You!!)

Thank you to all of our amazing sponsors, presenters, and everyone who came out to learn and better our community!

If you attended and weren’t able to submit your survey yet, please let us know how the conference went for you: what worked, what didn’t work, and new ideas on what we can take into consideration for next year.

Additionally, for those who were not able to attend, your feedback is equally as important! Let us know what will bring you to GDevCon N.A. next year!

Finalized Schedule

We just finalized our schedule. Here it is.

You can also checkout here for more info on the various presentations.

We look forward to seeing you all either Tuesday morning. If you are around on Monday, be sure to join us for drinks at the Ace’s High, directly across from the venue. Also don’t forget (it’s not on the schedule) if you want to go whitewater tubing (it’s not crazy whitewater, but it is a step up from the lazy river) on Thursday, bring something to swim in.

Travel plans booked? Deadline approaching soon.

Don’t miss out! We are only a few weeks out from GDevCon N.A. in Golden, Colorado. Click the link below to reserve your tickets before July 1st.

The agenda is jam-packed with excellent presentations from community leaders, as the premier North American graphical conference of the year!

Did you miss the deadline for abstracts or have a topic that is more suited for a rapid fire seven minute presentation? Great news – we are on the hunt for 7×7 presenters.

Accept the challenge below!

Also, don’t forget to book your travel! We’ve negotiated a discounted rate at the Golden Hotel-directly across the street from the Buffalo Rose-at $209/night.

2022 Presentation Preview

Attendees of GDevCon NA 2021 watching a LabVIEW presentation

We’ve had a lot of questions about who will be presenting this year. The official deadline for submitting presentations is April 30th, with a final announcement on May 15th. We didn’t want to make you wait to find out who is presenting until then, so we went through the submissions we have received so far and preapproved a handful.

Currently Approved Presentations

Quentin AldredgeMore Advanced Smartphone-like UIs Using QControlsDo you want more advanced User Interfaces than you can normally get from LabVIEW? Maybe the user experience needs to be for a touch screen similar to common smartphone interfaces. I’ll show tricks to using the QControl Toolkit to create swipe, scroll, and selection via a touchscreen more intuitive.
Casey MayBowzer the Browser and the AF GuildOne of the side effects of working with Actor Framework is that the complexity of the block diagram is often moved to the file system. While this helps makes applications more scalable and modular, one area where it falls short is API/Message discoverability and navigation. Navigating the project to find the capabilities of each actor can be an exercise in frustration, especially for newer developers. The Bowzer the Browser aims to address some of these issues with the help of the Actor Framework Guild.
Darren NattingerLudicrous Ways to Fix Broken LabVIEW CodeI worked for over 18 years in LabVIEW R&D as a feature developer. Two years ago I moved into NI’s Tech Support department to help mentor junior engineers and build their LabVIEW experience. In that time I have seen a lot of compiler errors, app builder failures, crashes… and most of the time, users will settle for any hack, kludge, or workaround just to get usable code. In this presentation I’m going to share a number of the ridiculous ways I’ve managed to get broken code running. Kinda like a fire extinguisher… you hope you never need to use it, but if you do, you’re glad it’s there.
Enrique Noe AriasImproving the developer experience of DQMH Projects, a new ‘Generic DQMH API Tester-Launcher’DQMH 6.1 comes with a new scripting API, I’m working on a new ‘Generic DQMH API Tester-Launcher’ using these new scripting tools, this development can scan all the DQMH modules on your project including the ones under dependencies, know some details of each module, launch the real API tester of the DQMH module selected, can trigger some of the default request events, the main purpose is to have a starting point when developing DQMH projects and help the developer to not lose the context by reducing the browsing of the project explorer.
Katya PrinceIntroduction to Image AnalysisNI used to present an introduction to DAQ talk that covered the topics: Acquire – Analyze – Display. This talk will be a high level introduction to similar steps of Image Acquisition. It will cover Acquisition with cameras and lighting using a demo of MAX. Next, it will cover Processing and Analysis with a demo of Vision Builder. Finally, it will cover Display and some of the quirks and non-intuitive features of Image Processing.
Allen C SmithMaps, Sets, DVRs, and Classes: A Practical ExerciseCollections – maps and sets – were added, without much fanfare, in LabVIEW 2019. These highly useful constructs are still new to many LabVIEW users. In this presentation, we will explore what maps and sets are and how you can use them to solve routine data management challenges. As a practical example, we will use maps, sets, and some additional LabVIEW features together to identify groups of objects that share common search tags.
