In my time as a Principal TSE at NI, I have seen a lot of compiler errors, app builder failures, crashes… and most of the time, users will settle for any hack, kludge, or workaround just to get usable code. In this presentation I’m going to share a number of the ridiculous ways I’ve managed to get broken code running.
Darren Nattinger (DNatt) is a CLA who has worked at NI for over 24 years. He spent most of that time in LabVIEW R&D, thinking of and implementing editor features to delight LabVIEW programmers, but he is currently a Chief Techical Support Engineer, helping build up LabVIEW expertise in the NI tech support department. Darren is the 7-time undefeated (now retired) World's Fastest LabVIEW Programmer, and was the primary developer for LabVIEW features such as Quick Drop and the VI Analyzer Toolkit. His favorite LabVIEW framework is DQMH. Darren has a BS in Mechanical Engineering from UT Austin, and an MS in Electrical and Computer Engineering from Georgia Tech.
