Technical Seminars Focus on Maximizing Engineering Productivity for Microsoft Visual Studio .NET

9/25/2002 - National Instruments kicked off the Measurement Studio RoadShow, a nationwide series of FREE half-day technical seminars educating engineers on how NI Measurement Studio speeds measurement and control application development with Microsoft Visual Studio .NET.

A leader in measurement and automation software for more than 15 years, NI integrates the latest commercial technologies with its computer-based software to maximize development productivity. In this tradition, NI Measurement Studio, a suite of high-level add-in measurement components for Microsoft Visual Studio .NET, abstracts low-level programming and I/O configuration, turning Microsoft programming languages, including Visual Basic .NET, Visual C++ .NET, and Visual C# .NET, into efficient, measurement-specific tools.

"Since the early versions of Windows, NI has provided engineering software to complement Microsoft technologies," said Sam Henry, Product Manager for Visual Studio .NET in the Developer Platform and Evangelism Division at Microsoft Corp. "Measurement Studio works with our latest development software, Microsoft Visual Studio .NET, by delivering native measurement tools that users of Visual Studio can use to create powerful measurement and automation applications in a familiar environment."

At the Measurement Studio RoadShow, novices and expert programmers alike learn to use Measurement Studio to shorten development time and increase application possibilities for data acquisition, instrument control, postacquisition analysis, motion control, and machine vision integration.

"For a developer using Visual Studio .NET who programs measurement applications from scratch, Measurement Studio can turn weeks of programming time into minutes," said Shelley Erickson, NI Product Manager for Measurement Studio. "By using high-level features to dramatically reduce development time, engineers have more time to concentrate on their measurement application itself rather than low-level details."

Attendees learn about combining the latest innovations in Microsoft Visual Studio .NET with NI Measurement Studio, from networking instrumentation data to using interactive I/O configuration tools, and get a sneak peek at what is to come in the next version of Measurement Studio. Seminar attendees receive evaluation versions of NI Measurement Studio and Microsoft Visual Studio .NET, as well as hands-on scripts for creating sample applications.
