LabVIEW front panels often overwhelm users with a torrent of raw data that takes time and brainpower to make sense of. We'll discuss strategies to add context, and impact to your data so users can immediately understand the story your system is telling. Build clean, intuitive, and functional interfaces that reduce pain for developers and operators alike.

Submit your best (and worst) LabVIEW UI screenshots to for an interactive discussion of best practices for making sense of complex systems with great interfaces.
