Event description
LabVIEW programmers who want to improve their SW engineering approach: An opportunity to learn from 3 experienced developers/ entrepreneurs

About this Event

The workshop will take place the day after NIDays 2019 in Munich at National Instruments' training center.

For LabVIEW programmers who want to improve their software engineering approach to programming, the DSH Pragmatic Software Development Workshop is a one-day hands-on workshop that offers the opportunity to learn from three experienced programmers/entrepreneurs: Fabiola De la Cueva (Delacor), Steve Watts (SSDC) and Joerg Hampel (Hampel Software Engineering).

The Workshop

As the title suggests, the "Pragmatic Software Development" workshop is about exploring and discussing the practical aspects of software development - the best practices used in real life in real projects with real clients.

It is lead by entrepreneurs with more than 60 years of combined real-life experience in developing software and fulfilling projects, both fixed-price and based on time and materials.

  • This workshop - as well as all other DSH workshops - differs from the existing offerings of other providers in that it does not cover theoretical basic knowledge or train the handling of certain products.
  • The focus is on introducing those best practices in software development that have proven to be necessary and meaningful, equally to all three DSH companies in their day-to-day project business.
  • Differences in the implementation of these best practice concepts, both in the three DSH companies, as well as possibly in the companies of the participants, are identified and discussed.

DSH workshops offer a useful addition to existing training offerings, such as those from National Instruments.

The Contents

The group will work on a solution to a real problem, starting with a customer phone call and finishing with a project post-mortem: From requirements gathering to planning time and budget, from sketching the design to refining the software architecture, from implementing the solution to comparing it with others.

  • Personal Attributes (the human part...)
  • Support Processes (Standards, Workflows, SCC & Version Control, Automation & CI...)
  • Project Inception (Requirements, Modelling, PM Tools, Risk Management...)
  • Initial Design (Prototype, Diagrams...)
  • Modular Design (Theory)
  • Modular Design (Exercise)
  • Support Processes (Remote Access, Tracking, Feedback...)
  • Project Fulfillment (Tests, Commissioning, Post-Mortems...)

Workshop attendees will learn how three successful businesses go about mastering the aforementioned challenges. Based on the findings of the workshop, attendees will be able to refine their existing processes or start implementing new ones in their own workplace. Teams would particularly benefit from the shared experience, as it will help implement or strengthen a common way of working.

Testimonials from the 1st workshop held at GDevCon#2

  • "It was great to participate in the DSH workshop with my team. Hearing about the solutions to problems we try to tackle regularly at the workplace from others proficient in the G Community was encouraging and inspiring. If anything, I would have liked it to have lasted for two days to cover even more ground. Much of the discussions that spawned from the topics covered triggered pragmatic conversations!" (Kabul Maharjan, Renishaw)
  • "The DSH Pragmatic Software Development Workshop was a big hit. It felt more like a roundtable discussion than a class. They would take turns presenting a topic and then moderating the ensuing discussion. It was interesting seeing how each of their approaches differed. I definitely learned a ton." (Sam Taggart, System Automation Solutions LLC.)
  • "We really enjoyed both the workshop and GDevCon. It was great to see how other people do software engineering or how they have different views on the subject. The event provided us lots of thoughts and tips on how to improve our way of working or how to put things into practice." (Stefan Lemmens, Intersoft Electronics)
  • "I attended the inaugural workshop at GDevCon this year. In fact, this was the big motivator for me to come across the pond. […] I have worked with the entire team for many years and they executed a highly professional, engaging, and valuable 1-day workshop at GDevCon." (Nancy Henson, National Instruments)
  • "I enjoyed the workshop, thanks, and I look forward to the next one." (Maurizio Bollini, MET srl)
  • "I really enjoyed the workshop, it has given me lots of practical tips." (Leah Edwards, Renishaw)
