Dallas LabVIEW User Group Meeting Recap + Coding Challenge Winners Announced

The Dallas User Group Community came together at G Systems in February for a LabVIEW User Group meeting, hosted in Richardson. We're proud to announce our competition champions.

LabVIEW Coding Challenge Winners Dallas

This year’s LabVIEW User Group meetings kicked off with a competitive coding challenge. There was laughing, trash talking, frantic coding, and most importantly, learning more about solving problems using LabVIEW. 

The competition consisted of three challenges and was completed in a timed format, racing one another to the finish line. During and after each challenge, competitors had the opportunity to share screens and consider new ways to problem solve. New approaches and new LabVIEW functions were takeaways from the meeting.  

One challenger chose to do text string manipulation. While solving the same problem, another challenger converted the text to character codes to manipulate numerically. Still another revealed how to enable a feature on a common function to allow for regular expressions.

While we all learned from each other, the winners left with bragging rights and medals. Join us in April and get involved with our Dallas User Group Community!
