I attended the Creating GUI Applications in Python using Qt I by Paul Kippes this morning and then I attended half of his second tutorial on PyQt this afternoon. The speaker had lots of materials to give us including fairly extensive examples. I think I learned a lot during the morning session because I had a fair amount of hands-on code editing and using Qt’s Designer, which is a WYSIWYG editor for creating the GUI, kind of like Microsoft’s Visual Studio.
The second session was just a talk with no on-hands coding of any kind. I was not engaged during this tutorial very well and decided I would be better off leaving at break and doing something else. I’ll study the speaker’s notes and code examples later. Look forward to some articles on PyQt and perhaps PySide in the future!
