Are you up to a LabVIEW code challenge? Want to increase your LabVIEW Coding Foot Print? Join us in the LabVIEW Coding Challenge 2011, and enter to win a Sony Cyber-shot DCS-HX9V digital camera!


There are two separate challenges for this year’s competition:

Problem Solving

For this challenge a specific coding problem will be presented and each contestant will submit a VI that solves the challenge in the manner described in the problem statement.  The submissions will be judged based on whether the answer was correct as well as execution time of the VI. The winning entry will solve the problem correctly with the shortest execution time.

User Interface

For this challenge you will be presented with a block diagram and a Front Panel with a few basic controls on it.  The challenge will be to enhance the Front Panel to make it both functional and descriptive as a User Interface.  The goal is to be creative, but also keep in mind usability in your design.  The winning entry will be chosen based on the number of “likes” (not “downloads”) it receives.
