TSnax simplifies the TestStand API by splitting up the functionality found in the TestStand Engine into easier to navigate classes and putting the methods where you'd expect to find them. An example is the ability to open a Sequence File with the SequenceFile class instead of calling GetSequenceFileEx on the Engine class. It also daemonizes most references so they stick around when asynchronous VIs finish their execution.

I like playing with all the LabVIEW features DNatt says to avoid which hopefully makes me chaotic good. I like making tooling for developers, poking at the darker corners of LabVIEW (Channels, XNodes, VIMs) and generating the eventual bug reports, and experimenting with architecture and API design in LabVIEW.

Currently work at NI in the support organization providing assistance on cases for LabVIEW, TestStand, RIO, RT, Web, and a smattering of other products.
