  7. 2022 November - Empowering Your Open Source LabVIEW Ideas


    By: Jesper Kjær Sørensen

    Do you have the next great idea for an open-source toolkit in LabVIEW but need help implementing it? Would you like to help new upcoming toolkits get funded and get initialized? Is your company looking for an open-source project to invest in? The G Idea Exchange is a sub-committee under the non-profit GCentral. It promotes and supports new open-source toolkits and ideas for improving LabVIEW, helping open-source ideas get off the ground.

    The collection of funding through CauseVox was cancelled in the end of 2023 and the video is no longer matching the current events but kept for historical purposes.
