I have just passed the architect exam, and I just wanted to say that I have learned a lot from the posts on this site. Many thanks all.

A special thanks to the lava member FAB to came over to the UK from the US to do the advanced architectures course at NI and was by far the best lecturer that I have had there.


Thanks for the compliments, I am blushing :)

So, I guess I will see you at one of the CLA Summits next year?

      We've are looking for a staff software engineer to join our company in Boston, MA (near downtown). We have a 3000+ vi application that has been in continuous development by multiple software engineers (currently 4 engineers + 1 intern) for 15 years. Every year we release a new version of the software with significant new features. An engineer with our company needs to be more than just a LabVIEW hacker. We need a software engineering that can go into our large application, modify it, sometimes in very fundamental ways, without breaking existing functionality, and have an eye for how their changes impact the maintainability, scalability, reliability, and readability of our code.
      Candidates will likely be LabVIEW Architects or have equivalent experience if they don't have formal certification. We lean towards candidates who have Masters Degrees in such fields as Electrical Engineering, Mechanical Engineering, and Computer Science. Interviews will be conducted over phone, web, and in person by a LabVIEW Architect and will need to be able to discuss topics such as the following:
      - coupling and cohesion in software design, how this relates to design paterns such as action engines
      - software lifecycle models
      - state machines, parallel loop architectures, race conditions, data structures, type definitions, Xcontrols,
      - Object Oriented design
      - importance of documentation, importance and use of source code control
      - pseudo code and its usefulness as a design tool, some exercises will require users to read and write pseudo code to solve classic computer science problems
      - tradeoffs of various file formats in terms of flexibility for future software changes
      - FFT, Frequency Response, Amplitude/phase, RMS level, dB, noise, averaging, distortion, loudness, A-weighting
      Formal job ad is below:
