National Instruments hosts CLA Summit in Bangalore


US-head quartered National Instruments successfully hosted its first Certified LabVIEW Architect (CLA) Summit 2016 in India’s tech hub Bangalore.

The main aim of the summit was to bring together the most skilled LabVIEW developers from across the country who are working on a variety of test, measurement and control applications.

“I am excited to have been a part of the first CLA Summit in India this year and witness the vibrant community of LabVIEW users and their innovative and advanced applications that our LabVIEW Certified Users here are developing to solve real-world engineering challenges,” said Jeff Kodosky, Co-founder and NI Business and Technology Fellow at National Instruments.

The Certified LabVIEW Architect is the final step in the three-part LabVIEW certification process. The exam for this step presents a set of high-level requirements and tests the user’s skill in building a program hierarchy with LabVIEW and a project plan for delivering an application that fulfills those requirements. This level of certification validates the LabVIEW programing capability and the ability to architect reliable, efficient and well documented project.


“This has been a great opportunity in bringing together the certified LabVIEW users from various industries in India and have them share their experiences and insights about their applications,” said Senthilkumar Murugesan, CEO, Unilogic and the chairperson of the CLA community.

“With the growing Indian economy, companies today face many new trends and technological challenges. The need for skilled LabVIEW developers in the community is ever more. The CLA summit has helped in developing the Certified LabVIEW Architects Community manifold and contributing towards the sustainable development of the Indian engineering ecosystem,” added Jayaram Pillai, Managing Director, National Instruments India.
