Even More Life Changing Mouse Buttons

I recently wrote a post on how to change your life by changing a mouse button.  My life has been vastly improved since I added a delete button to my mouse.  My hair is growing thicker and fuller, my eyesight has improved, my lawn is greener, and I can delete things so much faster than before.  My life has been great, but I still felt like something was missing.

The Secret Combination to Unlocking AutomationDirect Stepper Motors in LabVIEW

I was working on a radiation leakage test system trying to control a STP-DRV-4850 motor designed to spin an array of D-tect sensors around a unit under test.  I was able to spin the motor using AutomationDirect's utility program, SureStep Pro and everything was looking good, until I tried to send the motor controller serial commands from LabVIEW.

2017 World's Fastest LabVIEW Programmer - Endigit 1st and 2nd Places!

Last week at NIWeek, National Instruments held the World's Fastest LabVIEW Programmer competition.  With Robert Mortensen being the 2016 champion, Endigit was hoping to make an impact again this year.

 

In the first round of competition, competitors complete three programming challenges in as little time as possible.  The competition open to anyone attending NIWeek and runs in the LabVIEW zone on the Expo floor.  

 

Change a Mouse Button, Change Your Life

I like being efficient. I don't like doing unnecessary things.  I figure out the fastest route to drive everywhere I go.  I even tie my shoes differently to save myself two seconds.  If you have talked to me in person then it is very likely you have heard me go on about minimizing my wallet.  I don't like wasting time or energy.  At Endigit, we are proud of our efficiency and ability to complete things quickly. One way we do this is by being effective in our key strokes and mouse clicks.
