Efficient Working with Databases in LabVIEW – GDevCon#2

In August 2019 at the Repertory Theatre in Birmingham, I gave a presentation at GDevCon#2 discussing working with databases in LabVIEW. The videos from the event have now been edited and uploaded to the GDevCon YouTube channel.

The playlist with all of the great content from GDevCon#2 is here –

In the presentation I offer some hints & tips for working with databases in LabVIEW (best practice, security). Then I propose a method for speeding up development by applying techniques learnt from Yii’s (a PHP Framework) ActiveRecord implementation. Finally, I demonstrate an OO-based LabVIEW ActiveRecord implementation and some scripting tools I have developed for generating the classes automatically from a database schema.

You can find the video of my presentation and the presentation slides below:
