Wait. What?

Am I the last person on Earth to realize that NIWeek is moving to May in 2017?!?

Oh and you already missed out on the early bird special...which there was about a 1 week window between being announced and closing.  One of the reasons I heard this change was coming, was because NI used to get deep discounts at the convention for going in the summer, but those discounts aren't there anymore.  That and people have been complaining about how hot it is.  

Still I think it will be weird for a few reasons.  The academics will be considerably lighter since...well school will still be in.  Professors will also likely not be able to get time off so attendance will be down for that group even more.  And what about What's New In LabVIEW 2017?  Is 2017 going to be released in May?  Usually there is a SP1 in February, is NI going to be able to push out a new full release (develop, review, document, beta test, etc) in time?  It'll probably be for the better in the long run, but I wouldn't be surprised if attendance is down this year.

Well crud.  I was actually starting to schedule some stuff around NIWeek -- in August.  I've been telling the Big Boss if they send me, I might consider not retiring next year. ;)  But May would be hard to work in.

I have to agree about the heat, tho.  Austin in August is, umm, toasty.

I expect there will be many people trying to sign up in July.

While it has been many years since I was able to attend NI Week, I still recall the display at the bank showing 99 degrees and 100% RH at 7am. It was an interesting experience stepping out of the hotel, sweating during the two block walk to the convention, then having all that sweat instantly freeze upon entering the convention hotel.

I will be looking forward to a LAVA BBQ where I'm not sweating just because I'm sitting outside. This year I was at least smart enough to bring a change of clothes.

      Hello all.  So NI is trying something new this year for NI Week.  Year after year NI gets feedback from those that attend NI Week and one of the most common things people ask for is more technical sessions.  We don't care too much for a marketing presentation telling us how your company is awesome, and we don't really need NI to tell us about some new hardware we'll never use.  But coming back from NI Week with new technologies that excite me and make my job get done better, makes my boss want to send me next year.
      So as a way for NI Week to get more technical, NI has dedicated a room at NI Week to advanced users to give presentations on advanced topics, allowing them to make up their own Advanced Users.  This track will be in addition to the other tracks NI usually has for various industries, like aerospace, and automotive.  These presentations will be given by advanced developers who are LabVIEW Champions and will focus less on marketing and more on being technical, sorta similar to what you'll see at a CLD/CLA Summit.  So checkout Room 15 Tuesday and Wednesday for the advanced awesomeness, you should expect lots of hearty frank group discussions.
      It seems not all of the topics are posted by NI yet, but here are just some of them.  And yes for a bit of self promotion I am giving an updated presentation on XNodes that I gave earlier this year.
