“I’m BenNI, do you know who I am?” seems like a strange question for someone to ask. I mean, you just told me you’re Ben. But this is a question I have heard dozens of times, and it still makes me smile every time. Ben is one of our Senior Architects, our most experienced developer. He takes on only the most difficult tasks. He develops code that becomes the standard. Why does he introduce himself that way? He’s trying to see how familiar you are with NI and LabVIEW. If you know who he is, then you know his clout in the community of developers and architects. It’s as if you asked him a football question and he said “I’m Bill Cowher, nice to meet you.” You are not going to tell Coach Cowher something every high school coach should know, and you are not going to explain how big the Super Bowl is. That’s the point of Ben’s question. He wants to save you the trouble of telling him to reboot the system or to reinstall the software. He doesn’t need you to explain how feedback nodes work or how to use a queue. Instead he is asking you to work at his level, to challenge yourself to tackle the more abstract, the higher performing, or the more dynamic. He is telling you to pay attention because this is going to be a tough one, but not something he can’t handle.
