LabVIEW Application Development

A LabVIEW Developer can interpret a software design document and implement a solution in LabVIEW while following best practices for software development. Badge earners have demonstrated their ability to build functional user-friendly applications using LabVIEW. This badge is earned by acquiring a set of required badges.



Goal Interpret a software design document and follow best practices to implement a solution in LabVIEW.
Task-based Objectives
  • Build a simple looping or sequencer VI from scratch for single-shot use.
  • Choose and implement appropriate mechanisms to communicate across parallel loops
  • Build readable, performant user interfaces that enhance functionality and user experience
  • Use classes to organize code and limit access to data
  • Use LabVIEW Application Builder to build executables and installers
  • Demonstrate awareness of and the ability to follow software engineering best practices

Optional Technologies:

  • Use object-oriented programming to increase the scalability and modularity of your LabVIEW code
  • Use the DQMH framework to efficiently create applications with safe, event-based message handling.
  • Use the Actor Framework to build inherently parallel, scalable, and modular LabVIEW systems.
  • Use Channels in LabVIEW to communicate between parallel sections of code without forcing an execution order.

It seems that right now there is no way to actually earn this badge, I don't know if it is a glitch or that things are just still being brought up.

Imo, QMH template is more essential than the DQMH, actor framework or channel wire communications to be considered as an application developer.
