NI will be presenting on the lessons we learned in building and discontinuing LabVIEW NXG. This session will cover as many of the lessons we learned as we can fit into a session. This is meant as both an educational review for people to learn from as well as a session to provide insight into NI and some of the projects we work on. We will share:
* technical, professional, and operational aspects to the project
* the things that went well, and how we will continue applying them
* areas that we struggled with and how we worked through the struggles, both successfully and unsuccessfully
* problems we encountered and what we learned from them that influence how NI will continue to grow and develop
