Our team is using BitBucket for source code control and the SourceTree app for Windows to interface with our repositories. We’ve had a couple of small hurdles getting SourceTree to integrate with the LabVIEW diff tool, but here’s a solution that’s worked for us.

Marty graduated from the University of Utah with a BS and MS in Mechanical Engineering with emphasis in mechatronics and robotics. He began his career at OrbitalATK as a process engineer. In his five years in that role he developed systems for electronic test of ordnance, large motor weighing, automated pressure tests, and statistical process control. Marty then spent five years on the software engineering team where he became the team lead and Certified LabVIEW Architect There he worked on avionics test sytems and control software for a carbon fiber weaving machine among other projects. Marty enjoys farming, repairing old cars, and his 4 children.
