For the 17th time in a row National Instruments organizes NIWeek, the company's annual customer and technology conference. The conference takes place in Austin, Texas and features many interactive technical sessions, targeted summits, workshops and exhibitions on the latest developments for design, control, automation, manufacturing and test. Apparently, at NI a week has only three days; maybe that explains why the company is so high on the list of Best companies to work for!


This year Elektor too will be present the whole 3-day week to cover the event live. Our special embedded reporter Clemens Valens will put on his cowboy boots, saddle his horse and drive from booth to booth while posting items on his blog so you too can see what is hot in LabVIEW country. Our live report is supposed to start on Monday the first of August. Heehaw! Be there or be square!
