  1. My thoughts is that it was just a bunch of marketing... new paint on the same old house. We'll see if they prove me wrong, hopefully in a good way. Not liking the logo though. As everyone has already shown, it's too much like everything else out there. What they had was unique and easily recognizable. Now, however, it's just another "modern" acronym-ized logo.
  2. I guess you could do your trick of maximizing momentarily with the transparency at 99% transparent. Open the VI Hidden, change the transparency, maximize, get VI panel size, change back to standard, set size and transparency.
  3. @Francois Normandin, I'm finishing another project now but I will be returning to this soon. If it doesn't do what I need yet, I'll work with you on it to accomplish more of the features.
  4. That’s probably true but we can’t rely on NI to produce a native implementation of every protocol out there. That’s why we need to make it easier to help each other.
  5. I'm working on a personal project (more information will be shared about this later) that needs Message Queue Telemetry Transport (MQTT). While searching for LabVIEW libraries for MQTT I found 1 on VIPM, 2 in the NI Forums, and 1 through Goggle on GitHub, as follows: WireQueue-MQTT Driver for LabVIEW by WireFlow AB (this one costs $550) MQTT Client API in native LabVIEW by Peter - daq.io (also on GitHub as LVMQTT) MQTT-LabVIEW by Michal Radziwon Quaxo MQTT LabVIEW by Stefan May This is not unusual for just about anything you might be looking for. In fact searching on GitHub there are 13 results for LabVIEW+MQTT. What was weird is that two of them were almost completely the same, yet neither attribute the other. I don't know which came first. I ended up forking from one of them but I guess I'll attribute both to be safe if I end up using it. However, talking about code confidence, I just found this one: LV-MQTT-Broker by @Francois Normandin. I know Francois, he is a LabVIEW Champion. He has included unit tests. It has full documentation as well as an NIWeek presentation by him and Sarah Zalusky, both of whom are Certified LabVIEW Architects (CLAs). From GitHub I can see he has been actively contributing to it and its open source (which most of them were). Honestly, I wish I had found this one first. Just some words for thought...
  6. I have some examples from my CLA Summit presentation on designing for touchscreens. Links to the video and the demo code are on the wiki at: https://labviewwiki.org/wiki/Americas_CLA_Summit_2019#qsi_ui-ux_touchscreen
  7. This discussion on package manager capabilities definitely needs to happen but just to summarize Chris' post: Therefore, will use what we have and improve as we go.
  8. On the topic, I want to be able to publish my code, have others contribute to my code, and contribute to others code as easily as possible. This is regardless of packaging technology. Also, I want to learn what is out there already, quickly and easily. So I don’t reinvent the wheel in ignorance.
  9. @joerghampel, GPM does allow local repos and GPM is open source. Link to MGI’s GPM Wiki: https://gitlab.com/mgi/gpm/gpm/wikis/How-Tos/Filesystem-Based-Registries Link to the GPM project: https://gitlab.com/mgi/gpm Even I have contributed to GPM along with some of the Composed Systems guys. @JamesMc86 I’m working on a palette editor now which can be used stand-alone but I’ll work with MGI to add it to GPM.
  10. All of the presentations are now on the LabVIEW Wiki. You can find them at: https://labviewwiki.org/wiki/Americas_CLA_Summit_2019 Thanks Kevin Shirey and Mark Balla for producing the videos and all those that volunteered to run the cameras. This is an awesome resource to be able to go re-watch and review these great presentations again or for those that couldn't join us in person to be able to view them as well.
  11. As a developer that works in development environment that is not internet connected I would like to be able to download packages and put them in a local repository.
  12. As a developer that works in development environment that is not internet connected I need to be able to host and search an internal system.
  13. As an IDE add on tools developer I want to publish, distribute, and install the tools as packages.
  14. First, thank you for your input. Together we can help make tools to better our community. To start we need to understand the variety and diversity of our community and the various problems we need to solve. Please add comments to this thread in the Personas/User Stories format. "As someone looking for code I want to..." "As someone contributing code I want to..." "As a user collaborating on an idea for un-created code, I want to..." "As a potential developer of code that hasn't been created yet, I want to..." "As a co-developer of code I want to..." "As a user of code that already exists I want to be able to..." "As a GCentral community member seeking to establish credibility I want to..." "As a company using GCentral as infrastructure..." You can start with one of these or start with your own but please continue the statement with what you want to do. Use these examples for ideas. As a Developer I want to be able to find code that will best help me create solution to... As a contributor I want to be able to share my library and distribute it easily through GPM, NIPM, or VIPM as a G Package, NI Package, or VI Package. As a user of Open Source Code I want to be able to find and download libraries from GPM, NIPM, and/or VIPM, easily. As a GCentral user I want a single profile that describes my work in the G Community (a digital code "resume/CV"). As a GCentral User, I want a history of packages I've downloaded. Thank you. Sincerely, Quentin "Q" Alldredge Member of the Board of Directors, GCentral
  15. I’ll be there. I’m excited to see everyone.
