2017 World's Fastest LabVIEW Programmer - Endigit 1st and 2nd Places!
Last week at NIWeek, National Instruments held the World's Fastest LabVIEW Programmer competition. With Robert Mortensen being the 2016 champion, Endigit was hoping to make an impact again this year.
The finals featured two Endigit employees, Robert Mortensen and Bryan Heslop! In an attempt to intimidate, Robert reminded Bryan that he had taken second place more times than Bryan had been to NIWeek, and was the reigning champion. In awe of Robert's superiority, Bryan felt extreme nervousness because it was only his first time competing.
In the first round of competition, competitors complete three programming challenges in as little time as possible. The competition open to anyone attending NIWeek and runs in the LabVIEW zone on the Expo floor.
Bryan Heslop from Endigit was the winner of the floor competition. With the fastest time on the floor, Bryan went against Sung Jin KIM from South Korea. Sung Jin won the event at NIDays in China and is Asia's Fastest LabVIEW Programmer.
In the final rounds both competitors are given programming challenges and race to complete them. The first to win 2 challenges wins and advances. Bryan and Sung Jin went head to head in the semifinals. There was some fast programming and Bryan came out on top winning 2-1.
Robert used his programming wizardry to defeat Bryan 2-1 and retain his title as World's Fastest LabVIEW Programmer.
Congratulations to Robert and Bryan from Endigit and Sung Jin from South Korea for being the fastest LabVIEW programmers in the world!
