T-shirts are Badge of Honor

Barely five minutes into his opening keynote speech, Tim Dehne paused to ask how many NI Week attendees had all 10 of the t-shirts given away. A few hands went up. Dehne, NI's senior vice president of R&D even found one attendee who was wearing the first one, which gave the top 10 reasons for attending NI Week. To see photos of the shirts, click here.

The t-shirts have become collector's items that are truly priceless, since no one seems to have heard of anyone actually paying for a vintage shirt. "It's more a badge of honor, that you've been here for years," says Kyle Voosen, vision product manager at NI.

In addition to t-shirts, this year's attendees also got small badges with a blank space for proud wearers to enter the version of LabView that they started with. Co-founder Jeff Kodosky bested everyone, putting Version 0.0 on his badge.
