The Advanced Architectures in LabVIEW Course teaches you how design and implement scalable, extensible software architectures for large LabVIEW applications. During the course, students participate in discussions and work independently and collaboratively to learn how to architect an application and design components to support the architecture. You will learn about several advanced design patterns, reference architectures, inter-process communication methods, and more.
Instructor-led Classroom: Three (3) Days

|Architecting an Application||In this lesson, you will learn how to design and document scalable, readable, and maintainable software architectures.|
|Designing an API||You will learn how to design a consistent, organized, and usable API that may reused in your software architectures and distributed to several developers.|
|Multiple Processes and Inter-Process Communication||In this crucial lesson, you learn about foundational APIs and design patterns and how they apply to several essential advanced design patterns. You also learn several advanced methods for communicating between multiple processes and their tradeoffs. Exercises and tools are general enough that you can use them in your own applications.|
|Advanced User Interface Techniques||This lesson covers how to create an architecture that provides a modular, scalable, and extensible user interface.|
|Introduction to Object-Oriented Programming in LabVIEW||In this lesson, you will learn how using the encapsulation and inheritance capabilities of LabVIEW Object-Oriented Programming can create scalable and extensible software architectures.|
|Plug-In Architectures||You will learn how to create a plug-in architecture that allows you to add features without changing your main code.|
|Tips, Tricks, and Other Techniques||This lessons covers various tips, tricks, and techniques to help you create your architecture|
