CANCELED: CS Workshop, March 2020


Dear Colleagues,

we, the experiment control system group @ GSI, would like to invite you to a joined CS++ framework and RMLUG workshop. Please feel free to forward this information to other colleagues.

The main idea behind this workshop is to bring the users and developers of CS and CS++ together with LabVIEW developers from the Rhein-Main region to discuss about the present status and future developments of our projects. In contrast to the last years the first day of the workshop will be opened to more general LabVIEW topics. The second part of this workshop will be a computer training course in which we want to show you how to program wthin ActorFramework/CS++.

This workshop was planned to take place at GSI in KBW.2.28, from March 17, 2020, Tuesday, 13:00 to March 20, 2020, Friday, 12:00. Due to lack of workshop contributions and awareness of actual health situation, the CS Workshop is canceled. This decision was recommended by GSI administration.

For the first part of the workshop we could run a Adobe Connect Web-Meeting in parallel, so that people from anywhere could join the workshop remotely. If you are interested to join via Web-Meeting, please tell HolgerBrand. We need some time to prepare. It would be nice if you could provide us with some suggestions about the topics you would like to be informed about and and/or the topics you would like to discuss. Please let us know, if you intend to come to the workshop or not.

You need your own development PC, Windows 10 with LabVIEW 2019+ and most modules installed. You need local_admin permissions on your PC. Prepare your development PC to allow Remote Desktop Connection if you plan to access it remotely.

LabVIEW Courses Core 1, 2, 3 and OOP are highly recommended. Refer to NI Self-Paced-Training, if you have a valid SSP contract.

NI software tools which are useful for our projects will be introduced at first:
  • Source Code Control with Git (Can be installed with GSI Software-Center) and Sourcetree
  • Measurement & Automation Explorer
  • Distributed System Manager, Shared Variables, Data Logging & Supervisory Control
  • DIAdem
  • Optional: LabVIEW Repitition:
    • TDMS
    • LV event driven programming (Occurrence, Notifier, Queue, Semaphore, Rendezvous, Event-Structure & User Defined Events), VI-Server
    • DAQmx
    • Instrument driver
Later we will continue with:
  • Actor Framework
  • CS++ libraries
