NIWeek Community Exhange and Mobile Barcode Scavenger Hunt


Recommended Posts

Hi Lava Members-

Since you all play a huge role in our NI Community, I wanted to update you on two cool events going on at NIWeek.

The first event is the Community Exchange, which is a two-day track of sessions based on community-driven innovations and new technologies. Some sessions you all may be interested in are:

1. LabVIEW Features from the Idea Exchange

Explore the 14 new features suggested by the community and implemented by R&D

Tuesday, August 3 2:15–3:15 p.m. Room 11A

2. Popcorn Tweets: LabVIEW Goes Viral

Learn how the world’s first Twitter-powered popcorn machine, programmed in LabVIEW, became a viral video

Tuesday, August 3 1:00–2:00 p.m. Room 11A

3. The Blogosphere’s Best

Hear from the top NI bloggers on topics including LabVIEW Robotics, large application development, multicore programming, virtualization, and blogging best practices

Wednesday, August 4 10:30–11:30 a.m. Room 11A

4. LabVIEW Add-On of the Year

Gain an overview of the Compatible with LabVIEW program guidelines and view in-depth product demonstrations from the finalists and winner.

Wednesday, August 4 1 - 2 p.m. Room 11A

5. People's Choice Award Winner Chris Relf will discuss Long-Term Investment in Test

As we build our way back from challenging economic times, many companies are investing in long-term test platforms. Gain an introduction to platform-based architectures, and learn about NI software and hardware used by industry leaders, how to implement these tools using NI software development environments, and hardware technologies including distributed/shared resources.

Wednesday, August 4 4:45- 5:45 Room 11A

You can see all of the sessions in the community exchange here.

The second event is a mobile barcode scavenger hunt during the NI Community Block Diagram Party. Mobile barcodes are 2D codes that your smart phone’s camera can read to serve up information, or “clues,” attached to the code. Prizes for the scavenger hung include Amazon and itunes gift cards, iPods, LabVIEW iPhone covers (3G) and the grand prize is a new XBox 360 - I'm sure all of these things would make awesome LAVA BBQ door prizes.

To learn more about how to participate in the mobile barcode scavenger hunt you can watch a how-to video.

See ya'll next week!
