Winter Community Coding Challenge

(*Posting for a fellow NI employee)


Hello LabVIEW Group Leaders,


I wanted to make you aware of an exciting opportunity for your members to show-off their LabVIEW skills and possibly win a Sony Cyber-shot Digital Camera HX9V!


Twice a year National Instruments puts on a Coding Challenge for the Community.  The latest challenge will kick-off on December 1st and will be focused on a “Green Theme”. There will be two different challenges, both centered on “GREEN”:


Problem Solving


For this challenge we will present a real-world problem statement. The goal is to create a VI that programmatically determines the solution. The winning entry will solve the problem correctly and have the shortest execution time.


User Interface


For this challenge we will provide a VI that contains a few basic controls and indicators. The goal is to transform the Front Panel into a fully functioning User Interface that is both creative and easy to use. The winning entry will be chosen based on the number of “likes” from community members it receives


The link for the challenge is and here are the relevant dates


Dec 1st  9:00am CT: Challenge descriptions become available (tentative)


Dec 19th 9:00am CT: Submissions accepted & voting for User Interface Challenge begins


January 11th 11:59pm CT: Deadline for submissions


January 13th 5:00pm CT: Voting ends & winners announced


I really appreciate you helping us get the word out.  If you have any questions or concerns feel free to let me know. Who knows, perhaps the winning entry will be a member of your group, or better yet, YOU!


Best of Luck!
