In one of my previous post, I wrote about how I managed to integrate Docker and LabVIEW into my Continuous Integration chain. Some of the readers asked about a little feature in Gitlab that I explored, Code Quality. Let's discuss about it. Code Quality Reports Some weeks ago, digging into the Gitlab help pages (btw, I … Continue reading VI Analyzer and Gitlab Code Quality
This is one of big points that I consider very important in maintaining a source code, being public or in your company.

A couple of days ago I was fooling around with the new Interfaces in … Continue reading Interfaces, OOP and JSON
For a while we've been trying to adopt good software engineering practices with LabVIEW. We've been aware of the VI Analyzer and the benefits of including the static code analysis in the workflow. For those who not know, the VI Analyzer Toolkit provides tests to your code that helps validate some style and practices and, … Continue reading VI Analyzer and Git
Hey, I'm back. It's been a while without posting, and now I'm bringing something that I've been researching in the past few weeks. It's been about project templates, more precisely, project structures. What is known...
