My name is Michael Aivaliotis and I've been working in the test and measurement industry since 1993 with LabVIEW 3.0. I started my career as a test engineer and quickly fell in love with the graphical programming paradigm that LabVIEW provided. Since then, I've worked on or developed an incredible number of complex test systems in electronics, semiconductor, automotive, telecom, biomedical and other industries. I am a Certified LabVIEW Architect and have the distinction of being among the few LabVIEW Champions. In 2002, I created the LAVA Forums which has now become the largest independent online LabVIEW community.

My kids used to say that I spend all day on the computer playing with lines and boxes. Yes, that's exactly what I do and I'm having a blast! Ever since I got hooked on LabVIEW, I've never stopped. As National Instruments continues to innovate, it allows me to use my LabVIEW expertise in new areas such as real-time, embedded and FPGA.

Since 1993, I've worked for several companies and have loved seeing projects, machinery and automation come to life. In 2014, I started my own LabVIEW consulting business with VI Shots LLC. Now I use my decades of experience to help companies tackle tough engineering challenges. Contact me to find out how I can help your company.

If you want to follow along on my journey, listen to the VI Shots Podcast or even join in on a live session. I also love to help others take their LabVIEW skills to the next level. Check out some of my LabVIEW Tutorials.


I'm available to chat anytime about the VI Shots Show, LabVIEW programming, consulting or anything else. Head on over to my contact page.
