At HSE, we are big believers in Inner Source (Open Source used within an organisation) and apply it to our customer projects. By opening up our code to the public and sharing it for free we make sure we stay on top of the tools and processes needed for that, and we pay back to the awesome LabVIEW community.

In this presentation, we will first introduce our open source offering and then focus on our flagship open source project: The HSE Application Template. This template is targeted at software built with and around DQMH modules. It is based on our UI framework (which builds on the HSE flavour of DQMH®) and comes with basic functionality for module loading and configuration, UI management and logging/debugging. The template serves as a starting point for our LabVIEW applications.

Finally, we will show our way of working and explain how you can contribute - because sharing is caring :-)

My professional interest lies in software engineering in small teams, with a focus on process and workflow standardisation and automation.

I have been creating software for a living for more than two decades, delivering real-world software projects successfully by collaborating closely with my customers. I have been working with NI's technology stack since 2007.

Around 2015/2016, I founded Hampel Software Engineering (HSE), a leading firm in the NI ecosystem in the fields of process and workflow standardisation and automation. At HSE, we work with teams of developers all around the world to increase the quality of their software through improved development processes. Hampel Software Engineering is the first NI Center of Excellence in Germany, a member of the NI Partner Program and a DQMH® Trusted Advisor.

I am a Certified LabVIEW Architect (CLA), a Certified Professional Instructor (CPI) and LabVIEW Champion and an over-all avid LabVIEW user. I enjoy consulting, coaching and generally speaking with or in front of people.

I am a member of the board at the DQMH® Consortium, a partner at DSH Workshops, a member of the GDevCon Alliance and a founding member of the Alliance of LabVIEW Architects. I'm also the founder/organizer of the award-winning Würzburg LabVIEW User Group (, and together with my colleague Ioan I run the North of Britain LabVIEW User Group (
