We Are Software Craftsman

Blogs
I immediately signed  the manifesto when I first saw the software craftsmanship.   Since my boyhood days, I always wondered and inspired by traditional craftsmen who brings the artistic outlook to any materials.  Whether it's wooden made art, or glass art or concrete arts as modern homes, it's always been inspiring for me about how the artist dives into the creativity and bring it a life with their hands, mind and concentration.  (more…)

What would I ask the universe?

Blogs, Consciousness Blog
I have recently seen Jim Carry's extreme speech on YouTube just before my afternoon nap.  I went on to sleep due to extreme tiredness.  The speech ran through out the nap and made me sleepless.  To be brief I have been searching for who am I.  I can understand all these that I'm not a thought, I'm beyond a thought, the awareness which even observes the floating thoughts in the mind.

LabVIEW + Virtual MachineBenefit 1: Isolated OS environments for each project, thus reduced deployment issues.

Blogs, LabVIEW Blog
In my last blog post, I said about a few key benefits of developing LabVIEW in Virtual Machines (VMs) like VirtualBox. Here is some details about first key benefit I realized. VMs provides a workflow for developers to separate the various projects in individual environments which eventually reduce the deployment issues.Some of the deployment issues which are faced while delivering LabVIEW application to a customer areMissing or unsupported software tools in the customer(deployment) PCIncompatible or mismatching software installed in deployment PCScenario Example: As depicted in above figure, let's consider that we have three project X,Y,Z which goes to three different customers and consider that each customer has different licenses from NI. Hence their LabVIEW version (2017,2016,2014) gets differed for each different project. All three different relies on a specific version…

Virtual Machines for #LabVIEW Development

Blogs, LabVIEW Blog
Virtual machines (VMs) are applications which can mimic your real PC and enable you to run individual virtual PC under another operating system (Windows/Mac/Linux) .It's popular for various reasons among users, and each user would say their own merit/demerit experience with VMs.Various VM applications are out there in market. Some of popular ones areVirtualBox from Oracle (Opensource)Workstation Player from VMware (Free basic version and paid premium version)Hyper-V from Microsoft (I used it for free in Windows 8)Parallels (for Mac machines)A Mac cum LabVIEW users would be quite familiar with Virtual Machines and Parallels because they had to run LabVIEW in Windows environment and Parallels is the one which offered that flexibility. However a windows user may not need to start using LabVIEW with VM as most of the LabVIEW offering…

No need to install FPGA compilers to review or edit your FPGA VIs

Blogs, LabVIEW Blog
Sometimes we just want to review or edit the FPGA VIs in LabVIEW project, but there will be huge stopping point of installing whole FPGA in the PC which might takes ages to install and also consumes too much of the disk spaces. FPGA compilers would take as much as 20+ GB. This would essentially include FPGA Farm compiler, ISE and Vivado compilers.One way to escape so much of installation time and saving the disk space is to carefully un-check the FPGA compiler during installation process. The general practice we follow for the team is that, we only install FPGA module in individual development PCs of team members and dedicate a separate PC which does the compilation process. In the dedicated compiler PC we would need to install all FPGA…

3 quote recap from Mom’s wisdom on #MothersDay

Blogs, LabVIEW Blog
Today is Mother's day. Mom is always a special space with love in whatever place you're at. On this special day, I would like to recall 3 key lessons she's given me.#1 : Tolerance & PatienceQuote in Tamil : "பொறுத்தார் பூமி ஆள்வார்"Pronounced as "Poruthaar boomi aalvaarr"Meaning: Those who is patient and tolerant rules the worldAt times I wonder how my mom is able to tolerate the harsh & wounding words from others. When the same words thrown at me, I become easily intolerable and burst out in reflex. The patience and tolerance seems to be seeping in me after I become dad which tells silently "this harsh moment will also pass by and there is more admirable moments around this little harsh moments". Lately I found how much I can…
