Congratulations Víctor !!]]>Thu, 01 Feb 2018 12:03:51 GMThttp://murmannlabviewconsultants.com/4/post/2018/02/victor-gonzlez-huerta-is-the-new-certified-labview-architect-in-murmann-labview-consultants-team-congratulations-vctor.htmlPicture

LabVIEW Architect Certificate shows the highest proficiency in application design and adminstration, as well as  the most competent and effective software development with LabVIEW.

Due to the passion we feel for this development software, there is no company team in Spain with a higher number of CLAs, which assures our clients that they will obtain the best possible result in their projects.

The certification exam challenges the developer to generate a software architecture to meet a set of high-level requirements in a maximum time of four hours.

Víctor González Huerta becomes the third LabVIEW Architect in our team, with a very high mark in his exam, approaching 85%.

Congratulations David!!]]>Mon, 29 Jan 2018 12:01:32 GMThttp://murmannlabviewconsultants.com/4/post/2018/01/murmann-labview-consultants-becomes-the-company-with-the-highest-number-of-labview-certified-professional-instructors-in-europe-with-the-recent-certification-of-david-prez-calleja-congratulations-david.htmlPicture
At MLVC we have a strong commitment to the quality of all services we offer our clients, which, together with our passion for LabVIEW teaching and our conviction that the ability to communicate technical concepts is as important as developing or creating them, has urged all the members of our team to obtain the qualification of Certified Professional Instructor in LabVIEW (CPI). For that reason, we have become the company with the highest number of LabVIEW Certified Instructors in Europe.

The Certified Professional Instructor (CPI) Certification distinguishes individuals who are authorized to teach National Instruments courses. CPIs are the only professionals, in addition to the National Instruments engineers, authorized to teach NI courses.

The CPI certification exam means that not only the highest experience and technical knowledge in LabVIEW are assesed, but also communication and leadership skills.

For MLVC, this new step implies a new advance in our commitment to continuous improvement and increase of the quality of the services we offer our clients, making us one of the most reliable team in automation and processes with LabVIEW.

<![CDATA[Daniel Murmann gets the Certified LabVIEW Architect (CLA) NI Certification]]>Fri, 09 Jan 2015 08:52:53 GMThttp://murmannlabviewconsultants.com/4/post/2015/01/daniel-murmann-gets-the-title-of-certified-labview-architect-cla.htmlPicture
Getting the "Certified LabVIEW Architect" represents the highest level in the NI LabVIEW certification process.

It is obtained after taking an exam where, in a maximum of four hours, you must cover the requirements (100 to 140 requierments) of a fictitious project that tests the skills of communication between processes, the use of Advanced Architectures development and managing complex projects with LabVIEW.

With an impressive score of 95.2 / 100 in his exam, Daniel becomes the second person in Spain that obtains the highest certification in LabVIEW. Congratulations !!

<![CDATA[NIWeek 2014 takes place in Austin]]>Sun, 03 Aug 2014 16:53:06 GMThttp://murmannlabviewconsultants.com/4/post/2014/08/niweek-2014-takes-place-in-austin.htmlPicture
As most of you know, worldwide conference NI Week 2014 is taking place in Austin during this week. It is the largest event of its kind organized by National Instruments: a gathering for National Instruments engineers, developers, users and LabVIEW gurus where the latest innovations in the field of NI products are introduced.

There you can attend 220 technical sessions, many presentations of cases of study, courses, certification tests, conferences focused on certifications, awards for LabVIEW applications, parties and live music where you can do networking and meet other users or developers.

This year, we have NIWeek 2014 Application available for Android or IOs so that it will be possible for you to know the agenda and attend to those events of your interest. At the same time it will give you information about the latest news of the conference. You can find it at App Store or Android Market.

As for the most remarkable events of this year conference, there is a Programming Challenge for LabVIEW Champions where they will be given some specifications and they will have to find the solution as fast as possible. It will be funny to see LabVIEW gurus brainstorming and developing witty architectures to get to a solution.

We can also mention here some outstanding presentations. Jeff Kodosky, the LabVIEW creator, will talk about the new projects in which he is involved and the trends in future LabVIEW updates. Another interesting presentation will be focused on “how to become a fast and efficient LabVIEW programmer”, by Darren Nattinger, who will give us some tips and tricks about using Quick Drops and the new autowire functionality in LabVIEW 2014.

Other remarkable presentations will treat on object oriented programming, design patterns and embedded systems programming. User Interfaces and good programming practices, as a key aspect in software development, will also be discussed. As it would be difficult to attend to all of them it is recommended to schedule out in advance those you are most interested in.
There will take place some academic forums where teachers and engineering students from around the world will show their innovative designs, from biomedical systems to autonomous submarine vehicles. Department of Mechanical Engineering and Dynamical Systems from University of Texas will teach a course about experience on modeling, analysis, simulation and control with LabVIEW. Its Department of Biochemical Engineering will show how they use LabVIEW for Optical Coherence Tomography (OCT) applications in real time.

As in previous years, you will find the famous “Coding Challenge” with new challenges and you will see who gets the title of fastest LabVIEW programmer of the year. Furthermore, NI Engineering Impact Awards will be presented, as a reward to the most innovative applications using LabVIEW among 300 users from 29 different countries.

Certification exams will be made for CLAD, CLD, CLA and CLED as well as training courses and support material for the exams preparation.

It is important not to forget about the third-party products for LabVIEW: development libraries or new hardware that will surely enhance the experience of using National Instruments products.

In addition to this, people often go to NIWeek for socializing and as a meeting point. You cannot miss its meals and parties with live music, such as the NIWeek kick off happy hour, NI Community Block Diagram or the famous annual party: NIWeek Party Conference, where you will meet NI Engineers, Alliance Partners, LabVIEW Champions, work colleagues and friends attendees having a good time in a friendly atmosphere.

That is why it is a hundred percent recommended event, it is quite a show within the scope of LabVIEW. Should it be not possible for you to attend this year, we do encourage you not to miss it next year.
<![CDATA[Murmann LabVIEW Consultants promotes together with National Instruments the first User Group Meeting in Spain.]]>Mon, 09 Jun 2014 09:35:48 GMThttp://murmannlabviewconsultants.com/4/post/2014/06/murmann-labview-consultants-promotes-together-with-national-instruments-the-first-user-group-meeting-in-spain.htmlPicture
LabVIEW User Group Meeting (LUG) are regular meetings created by users of LabVIEW community where recent advances in knowledge, development techniques, as well as business project that have been designed with LabVIEW and the latest trends in the art, are put together.
The purpose of these meetings is primarily to share and promote peer learning LabVIEW among users, and also to have fun and share experiences with colleagues.
The LabVIEW User Group Meetings are widespread in Central Europe and the USA but unfortunately in our country we do not yet have one. We believe it is important to promote this type of activity, so today together with National Instruments Spain we have taken the first steps in order to hold a LUG in Spain in a near future.
