Peter Scarfe

​After studying Mechatronic Engineering in Australia followed by a PhD in Computer Science, Peter Scarfe has over the past 15 years focused on software development using the LabVIEW programming language for automation and data-acquisition purposes in both the educational and industrial sectors.

When first introduced to the LabVIEW programming language he was impressed by how intuitive and visually-rich LabVIEW code was to use and learn in comparison to his experience with text-based programming languages. Thus LabVIEW became his programming language of choice for the future automation and data acquisition projects he was involved in.

While LabVIEW made it easy to quickly create small applications with a few independent processes, as the size and complexity of his projects increased, he became increasingly frustrated at how LabVIEW lacked a clean and simple way to easily scale the size of multi-process applications; he noticed that the complexity of creating and debugging larger multi-process applications increased dramatically.

Thus after years of framework development of various sizes on several automation and SCADA projects, he decided to put his efforts into the development of an easy-to-use framework; one that he wished he had access to himself all those years prior. Developed out of a sense of his own frustrations, he wanted to design a framework that made it as easy as possible for beginner developers to easily scale one of the most commonly used design patterns in LabVIEW. Following a simplistic approach, standard LabVIEW design practices, and supported with useful tools, he created Workers for LabVIEW: a framework that makes it easy for beginner developers to create multi-process applications with the QMH design pattern.

It is his hope that with the use of Workers for LabVIEW, developers will no longer need to be in the same position that he was as a beginner developer, and now have an easy way to develop scalable applications using one of the most commonly used design patterns in LabVIEW

Jesper Kjær Sørensen

My name is Jesper Kjær Sørensen and I am a Systems Engineer at GPower. I am a Certified LabVIEW and Teststand Developer and a general Pythonista. I have been programming in LabVIEW since 2006, in Python since about 2012, and TestStand since 2018. At GPower I have worked with many exciting projects, especially measuring Wind Turbine Blade Dynamics. My passion is making SOLID code and using SOLID programming principles, so I am continually working on improving myself. I have a general focus on combining the best parts from each of the languages to automate as many manual processes as possible.

I am also a trained Scrum Master in SAFe 5 and the Product Owner on GPower Expression Parser for LabVIEW, our expression evaluation toolkit for faster computations.

Historically, I have worked in several industries before GPower, where the most interesting was certifying, developing, and testing methanol-based high-temperature fuel cells while I was at Serenergy, now Advent Technology. I worked with the development of custom fuel cell stack test stations for about 3 years. Then I worked with CE certification and maritime approval of fuel cells, but over time I learned that developing applications and making code was my true passion and I decided to find new challenges at GPower.

I currently live in Denmark on a farm with my wife and daughter and about 40 Holstein cows and heifers. I am spending my spare time on photography and going on scouting trips with my daughter to unwind from the digital life.
