Pros & Cons of learning LabVIEW from Youtube Videos


  • Faster

  • Problem Specific
  • Good for express users who just want to build and forget


  • Problem specific

  • Lack full picture
  • No structure in training
  • Bad for large scale application

Consider different people watched 11 different videos. Since limited information is available, they will all have their own interpretations and conclusions leading to distorted form of process.

For this example, the process is supposed to be like sinusoidal wave as shown above.

Then the question may arise Why did I started LabVIEW Advantage Youtube Channel?

  • There were already lot of Youtube channels on LabVIEW
  • But… they were mostly product and services centric
  • Wanted to demonstrate the potential of LabVIEW
  • The objective was not only about LabVIEW but a holistic approach to include LabVIEW community also
    • CLA Summit, CLD Summit and IndLUG Events
    • Interviews with LabVIEW Champions, LabVIEW Legends & Personalities

Biggest Problem of them all

  • Most LabVIEW instructors had never developed application in LabVIEW
  • I interviewed CLADs, CLDs, and CLAs but they did not had essence of a responsible developer
  • This what also encouraged me to build Grafitects
