Calling all LabVIEW developers!

 

 

myRIO is an NI embedded hardware device that enables students to learn about and design real, complex engineering systems more quickly and affordably than ever before.  If you are experienced in creating software for embedded devices or for educational purposes, we need your help. The myRIO app ecosystem is growing, and the potential market is expanding rapidly. Creating a myRIO app is an excellent opportunity to establish your company’s name as a premier go-to in the educational software space.

 

These apps run right out of the box, transforming the myRIO into an Oscilloscope and Function Generator, Lock-in Amplifier, Audio Equalizer, and more.  To download and run any of these apps, visit ni.com/myrio/apps.

 

Interested in creating an app?  Visit and join the myRIO App Development Community, where you can find numerous valuable resources, including an example myRIO app, developer’s tutorial, detailed requirements, and a discussion board to assist with the process.

 

Your software, developed for myRIO and available on the LabVIEW Tools Network, can educate and enable students in diverse application areas like never before. Help us empower the next generation of engineers and scientists.

The best way to differentiate products on the LabVIEW Tools Network is based upon feedback from customers.  To capture this information, partner product listings contain a tab for Ratings & Reviews as shown below:

 

Tools network listing.png

 

 

What we've not seen in a Tools Network product to date is any direction from the product to submit a review.  This is something many of you are probably familiar with when using third-party applications on your computers, mobile phones, or even following an Amazon.com purchase.  Why not have a similar experience for the Tools Network?  Now you can. 

 

To facilitate linking your product to a Ratings and Reviews entry on the LabVIEW Tools Network we've created a subVI (saved for LabVIEW 2010) you can drop into any existing LabVIEW code (attached below):

 

Rate Product Front Panel.png

 

 

The default behavior is to prompt the user with a pop-up dialog after executing 10 times to ask the user to review your product.

 

 

Rate Product Pop-up.png

 

  • Selecting 'Rate now' will direct the customer to the Ratings and Reviews tab of the configured product page and never prompt the customer again.
  • Clicking 'Ask me later' will wait another 10 executions (configurable using the 'Number of Times to Wait' input) and prompt the customer again
  • The 'No, thanks' option will never prompt the customer again

 

 

This example can be dropped into your toolkits and applications as-is, customized to modify the text, etc.  It is up to you!

We would like to announce the latest version of the LabVIEW Third Party Licensing & Activation Toolkit.  Along with various bug fixes and improvements, Third Party Licensing & Activation Toolkit 2014 now includes support for deactivation, which allows you to move licenses between computers and reactivate add-ons.  Details on the new release can be found in the Readme and the new version can be downloaded from theLabVIEW Tools Network.  Help and support is available on the Third Party Licensing & Activation Toolkit community group.

Note:  The new deactivation features are only supported in LabVIEW 2014 and later.  You may still enable deactivation in your product built in older versions of LabVIEW, but only customers using LabVIEW 2014 or later will be able to deactivate their license. 

 

Also, Third Party Licensing & Activation Toolkit 2014 supports LabVIEW 2011 through LabVIEW 2014.  If your product requires support for LabVIEW2010, you may use Third Party Licensing & Activation Toolkit 2013 to license your product.

It's getting close to that time of year again!  NIWeek is a time when most of NI R&D, Marketing and Sales are all in the same place at the same time as many of our customers and partners.  It's a great opportunity to have face-to-face meetings with groups that you don't usually get to talk with outside of an email or phone call. 

 

The LabVIEW Tools Network team is preparing for NIWeek by clearing our schedule and setting up times to talk with our developers and partners about their existing and upcoming LabVIEW add-ons.  If you will be in town and are interested in setting up some time with us during that week, please let us know.  Send us an email at labviewtoolsnetwork@ni.com with the following information:

 

  • Name
  • Company
  • Agenda topics you would like to discuss
  • Times when you will be available to meet

 

Of course, due to busy schedules, we can't promise to meet with everyone, but we'll do our best to fit you in.  Hopefully we can get you in touch with the right people for moving forward with creating/publishing/selling your product.

 

Also, don't forget to stop by our NEW LabVIEW Tools Network pavilion on the NIWeek Expo floor to see how we're elevating awareness of tools to NI customers. There will be opportunites before the week is over to sign up your product for a kiosk at NIWeek 2015.

 

We look forward to seeing you all there!

Don't Get Lost In the Noise

Posted by penrenpo May 28, 2014

So you've registered for NIWeek, what's next? Maybe you have a new product ready to show off and have even booked booth space on the expo floor. Or maybe you are presenting in a technical session or forum. A booth is great, but do you have a datasheet or company overview to hand out?  Your new product may be awesome, but are you planning a press release and social media push to announce it? What else should you be thinking about so that NIWeek customers see you, know what your company provides, and how to contact you after the conference?

 

One of our preferred agencies, JH&A Advertising, provides full marketing solutions and is offering discounted promotion packages to help get your company ready for NIWeek and beyond. The good news is that creating assets now can help support future activities such as events, customer visits, website updates, etc.

 

Marketing doesn't have to be a dirty word or ugly process. Consider that you are one in a sea of many and you should trust an expert to take your awareness and visibility to the next level.

 

Take a moment to review the discounted packages and a la carte options attached below, and email Crystal Bristow, call the JH&A office at (512) 444-0716, or let me know if you would like more information.

 

As always, we are looking forward to hosting you in Austin for Alliance Day and NIWeek 2014!

 

Regards,

Penny Wright
