If you want to learn how electron microscopes work and how software applications interact with them, tune in for this webinar! Every time when starting at a new project, a software engineer is immersed in a new technical environment.

In this presentation Carla and Sjoerd explain more about the domain knowledge involved when developing software for electron microscopes at Thermo Fisher Scientific. They both work on Velox, an image acquisition application for controlling the Thermo Fisher Scientific electron microscopes.

The electron microscopes are composed of a large number of complex components that each require specific knowledge to operate. Traditionally, a microscopist is expected to possess much of this knowledge. In addition, the microscopist must of course have knowledge of the scientific field of his research.

Velox tries to hide the microscope's internals for the microscopist by automating parts of the functionality and only offering control functions to the users when they are relevant. As a result, a scientist with less microscopy knowledge is able to perform research on the microscope more quickly.

For the software developer of Velox, both the microscope’s internals as the scientists research workflow is visible should be understood to some extend. That makes working on Velox so interesting and challenging. The complexity of the machine on the one hand and translating the users' expectations on the other.
