Function of the G Idea Exchange Committee

The G Idea Exchange (GIE) Committee’s mission is to help new ideas become new open-source toolkits and libraries for the community. It does this by facilitating the discussion of new ideas on the G Idea Exchange forum and bringing awareness to the community of LabVIEW tools that currently exists through the Awesome LabVIEW Github List.

Committee Members

Jesper Kjaer Soerensen
GIE Committee Lead

Jesper Kjær Sørensen is a Systems Engineer and Product Owner at GPower. He is a LabVIEW and Teststand Developer and is proficient in Python. He has been programming in LabVIEW since 2006, in Python since approximately 2012, and TestStand since 2018. His passion lies in creating SOLID code and applying SOLID programming principles, driving him to continuously enhance his skills.

Residing in Denmark on a farm with his wife and daughter, Jesper enjoys spending his leisure time on cow photography and embarking on scouting trips with his daughter as a means to unwind from the digital world.

Casey May

Though he formally studied and has degrees in mechanical engineering, Casey became enamored with LabVIEW in 2005. His career started in the San Francisco Bay Area at Cal-Bay Systems and it was during this time that Casey earned his CLA and got to know more members of the LabVIEW community during events such as the CLA Summits. In 2011, Casey started consulting on his own before teaming up with a few other partners to form Zyah Solutions in 2021.

Casey has presented at multiple GDevCon NAs and has, along with the rest of the Zyah team, published numerous VI packages for the LabVIEW community. In 2023, Casey was accepted into the LabVIEW Champions community. Casey was a founding member of the Actor Framework Guild and is a proud member of GCentral's G Idea Exchange committee where he strives to increase collaboration amongst the LabVIEW community.

Erich Schlieper

Erich is a CLD and Professional Engineer (MN) with over 20 years experience engineering systems and testing widgets. He has been solving problems and fixing code since LabVIEW version 5. Erich has been involved in planning the local Minneapolis/Saint Paul User's Group for the last 6 years and has been a member of the G Idea Exchange Committee for the last year and a half. He has worked on projects big and small, trying to defy the inner desire of every software developer everywhere to rewrite every application. He prefers to be working on systems where there is a strong hardware and software component. He also enjoys getting into legacy code to find out what makes it tick and adding new features. His favorite saying born from years of experience is "There's nothing more permanent than a short term solution.

Eric Stach

Eric is a Research & Development Engineer at Duke University in Durham, NC, where he currently works on embedded sensing systems. He was introduced to LabVIEW in 2016 when he built test and measurement systems for teaching lab experiments. Outside of LabVIEW, he enjoys experimenting with new baking recipes (ask about the prinzregententorte), Duke basketball, and curling (yes, the sport played with brooms on ice). One of several Erics on the committee, he (and the other Erics) would like to assure everyone that they have no plans for a hostile or non-hostile takeover.
