  1. Howdy ya'll Thanks for your input. Please keep it coming! I'm trying to minimize my interactions with this thread so as not to inadvertently skew the conversation. I love the technical aspect of this conversation. Sounds like so far in this conversation we're exploring the "How can we do this?". I'd like to propose the additional following set of questions to summarize the virtual coffee conversations we've been having and hopefully merge the conversations (mentioned by Stagg54) in the first post To summarize, here is the logic \ questions that have arisen: The primary que
  2. Hey Ya'll Just wanted to let you know we're tracking user stories at https://github.com/gcentral/Website/issues. Please feel free to submit issues there and continue the discussion on the user stories here.
  3. Hi @gregoryj Sorry for taking forever to respond. I need to adjust my notification settings apparently. I do use the case that comes with Canakit. I'm able to keep the raspberry pi in the case and even put the lid on because of the ribbon that attaches to the breakout board. I got the ribbon and breakout board from Freenova. My full hardware setup is documented in the bitbucket readme at https://bit.ly/ChrisCilino_LabVIEWCommunityAndRP. And yes... it is fun! Enjoy!
  4. @Bryan Which link are you referring to? I just checked all of them and they seem to be working for me.
  5. GCentral is taking a yearly survey to help identify trends so we have data to back decisions. We're asking for 3 minutes of your time to complete the survey at: https://bit.ly/GCentral_Survey_2020-21 At the end of the survey you'll be able to see a summary of the results. In order to help keep the results accurate, you're allowed to take the survey only once, and requires you to sign in to your google account. Thank you for your time and your opinions. GCentral's success is only measured by its usefulness to you. Help make GCentral what you need it to be. See additio
  6. Love this idea! So basically an "idea exchange". I have an idea! Does the solution exist already? Is anyone planning to create it? Can I plan it in such a way that other's can implement it? Can I start implementation so that other's can join in? As a community member I would like answers to all of the above quickly. Is that a fair summary @ChrisStrykesAgain?
  7. #VIWeek The first Virtual LabVIEW Event Hosted By the Community. Starting Sunday, May 17th at 9 AM CDT See the full agenda at https://bit.ly/viweek Cilino VIWeek Intro.mp4
  8. LabVIEW Community Edition rocks! In order to help kick off this momentous occasion, I've put together an example alarm clock. It is broken down into 6 lessons (so far) taking you from blinking an led through creating an alarm clock with a state machine. To download or learn about LabVIEW Community Edition check out GCentral.org Check out the alarm clock here! <-(http://bit.ly/ChrisCilino_LabVIEWCommunityAndRP)
  9. Howdy Brian So this is awesome! I know Jeremy presented some stuff just like this in his NIWeeek 2018 presentation (posted on the LV Wiki). Do you know if something like this was ever exported into a package? I'm having a hard time finding it if it exists.... ironically.
  10. There has been a lot of discussion, which is great, but I feel the need to reiterate GCentral's vision and mission. GCentral envisions a LabVIEW community making the best version of itself by improving its capability through collaboration. GCentral is a non profit organization: for programmers who need to find, share or collaborate on G reusable code or software engineering tools. that provides a platform for G code packages and collaboration resources. that is independent and driven by community experts. GCentral's Mission Enable LabVIEW programmers t
  11. All In case you haven't already, GCentral could really use your help in getting CLA feedback. If you attended the CLA, summit would you mind taking 10 min to fill out the survey . If you didn't get the chance to attend the CLA summit please feel free to watch the presentation. I've included the presentation outline so you can go to the parts of the presentation you find most interesting. Then we would love your feedback via the survey. We're up to 33 respondents and I'm closing the survey end of next week (Nov 1). We really want to make sure we gather feedback from the communit
  12. As a member of the LabVIEW community I would like to have only one profile so I can have a consolidated summary of my activity in the community (number of ni.com posts, number of packages I've created, average rating on the software I release, etc)
  13. Hi Rolf That's good feedback. The current UI \ UX is just a proof of concept. Once we start designing the actual UI \ UX we hope it'll be efficient to use and pleasant to look at. One other note: the indexer is open source. Please feel free to suggest adjustments by joining the dev team on GCentral's git repo. Keep in mind GCentral.org is in its infancy so we're choosing to sacrifice aesthetics for functionality to avoid bikeshedding. Glad to hear you think GCentral is a good initiative and thanks for your thoughts!
  14. As a participant in the G package community I would like a periodic manifest of all new packages so I can stay up to date on what's new. I want to be able to specify how often I get the manifest and the maximum number of packages listed in the manifest.
  15. At the 2019 Americas Certified LabVIEW Architect Summit, GCentral was introduced to the LabVIEW Community. GCentral is a non profit organization (incorporated September 2019) composed of G community leaders creating a platform for programmers to find/use, contribute, and co-develop G code packages and collaboration resources. While GCentral is leading the charge to solve these problems, we will closely align with the community's needs. This forum is designed to connect GCentral's efforts with the community's needs. Some links to be aware of:
  16. Rather than have a bunch of links floating around, I'm creating this "one stop shop" for my contributions to the LabVIEW community. This is my Cilino Suite aka "C Suite".

  17. My apologies for not having much info on this page yet. I'm just trying to get the code in a presentable state and then I'll broadcast it's purpose and stuff.... And Cirrus Logic is not affiliated with NI. I'm not sure why my profile reads "NI"... hmmm.... I'll see if i can get that squared away.
  18. Description The Watchdog is composed of 3 main sections of code: Perpetrators: A perpetrator is something the watchdog knows to monitor or look out for. The most common perpetrator would be "elapsed time". We want the watchdog to notify us if a certain amount of time has elapsed. But...what if you wanted the watchdog to monitor many types of perpetrators? Disk usage? CPU usage? Temperature? Hence the perpetrator class was born and is a circumstance that the watchdog watches out for. Barks: a bark is what happens when the watchdog spots a perpetrator. You might wa
  19. Have you ever needed to programmatically generate a report documenting your LabVIEW Classes? I've released an alpha version of my auto-documentation utility I designed and implemented at Cirrus Logic (http://bit.ly/ChrisCilino_AutoDoc). I designed and created the software in 4 parts. 1) An Atlassian Confluence API, 2) An Atlassian JIRA API, 3) A Class Report generation API, and 4) Two very small "applications" the demonstrate the API's usage. Not only can the APIs \ examples document your code, you can also generate JIRA tickets for the parts of your documentation you're missing. I
  20. Overview In order to quickly and efficiently prepare source for distribution, a build system was necessary to abstract away the conversion of source into the different types of deliverables (VIPackages, Executables, dlls, ect) as well as abstract away the build order of our software hierarchy. Many have undertaken to solve this problem. I don't claim to have created a silver bullet. But I do hope that the system I've put together (and am releasing as open source) will act as a starting point for you to extend and customize to meet your needs. I've endeavored to employ good softw
  21. With NIWeek 2015 around the corner community events like the "World's Fastest Coding Challenge" are getting spun up. Another one of my favorite community event is the "Challenge the Champions", a competition between 5 LabVIEW Champions (including the new LabVIEW Champions being inducted at NIWeek 2015) and 5 challengers who think they can usurp these leaders of the LabVIEW community. In case you're unfamiliar with the LabVIEW Champions program you can find out all about it at bit.ly/lv_champions. I already have three challengers who'll definitely give the Champions a run for their money li
  22. NIWeek 2015 is just a few short weeks away! Community is a huge aspect of NIWeek and one of the most popular and fun community events is the “World's Fastest LabVIEW Programmer†competition. This prestigious title has been successfully defended by NI’s own Darren Nattinger (and if you’ve ever seen him compete you understand why). But this year Darren has announced his retirement from the competition and will go down in history as undefeated for 7 straight years beginning in 2008. While we’re sad that he won’t be competing, that means there will be a new name inscribed on the coveted
  23. Howdy! It's getting close.... NIWeek 2014 is almost upon us! To celebrate I put together a video for the LabvIEW Coding Challenge (linked below). To qualify for a chance to go up against Darren, visit the LabVIEW Coding Challenge in the LabVIEW Zone of the expo floor and test your skills. The two fastest coders will go head to head for a chance to go up against Darren, the world's fastest LabVIEW coder! The competition is at high noon on Thursday, August 7. I've personally written the questions and this year will be entertaining and fun.... I guarantee it. Darren's Coding Challenge
  24. Hey MarcCG, Thanks for the props! It's kinda funny. I've created some "hidden VIs" for my own purposes and one of them is to return an array of references to each node in the tree. In effect I flatten the hierarchy into an array so that you can touch every element. After install, the vi is located at ..vi.lib_ApplicationToolsContainersContainersContainerTestsTesting UtilitiesReturnEntireHierachyofContainers.vi Hey drjdpowell The Containers are by-reference. I didn't want to create copies of Containers in the tree so I store references to children in parents.
