What is LabVIEW and why should You learn it?

LabVIEW is a professional application development tool from National instruments. The main advantage of this tool is that it is user friendly and programing is done by drag-and-drop functional blocks, and connecting them with wires, similarly as it would be done in an electric circuit. As a result programming becomes intuitive, and fun.

The LabVIEW Core 2 course is an extension of the LabVIEW Core 1. It teaches you to use common design patterns to successfully implement and distribute LabVIEW applications for research, engineering, and testing environments. Topics covered include programmatic control of your user interface, techniques to optimize reuse of existing code, use of file I/O functions, and tools to create executables and installers. This course directly links LabVIEW functionality to your application needs and provides a jump-start for application development.
