Python is the fastest-growing programming language in the industry, and among the most popular programming languages in the world.
It's not a hard language for beginners to pick up and for intermediate or advanced programmers to advance, which is why the need to learn this language has increased exponentially over the past few years.
Python is a scripting language which means that you will write some code and run it in the terminal or command line. Running the code in the command-line will make it harder for the users to adopt your applications, so what if you want your application to have a fancy user interface this requires that your applications have a GUI.
In simple terms, GUI is a desktop app that provides you with an interface that helps you to interact with the script and enriches the user experience.
My name is Yasser Abbass. I'm a software engineer and I will be your instructor for this course
I have been in programming for the past 30 years and specifically in python for the past decade.
This course assumes that you have previous Python knowledge for instance (data types, conditional logic, loops, collections, etc) and it will teach you how to create professional python GUI stand-alone applications
The course is divided into several lectures we will be building 3 projects with varying levels of difficulty.
Some of the projects we will be building together are:
- Calculator Project
- Todo List Project
- File Backup Project.
But don't worry you will be able to create those projects and more as you follow along with the course and with the skills you learned you will be able to apply them to your projects. You will also be able to download all the source code for all the lectures and the projects.
During this course, you will learn:
- How to install the software on Windows, Mac, and Linux.
- An introduction to Jupiter-lab.
- Data types, Conditional logic, looping, and collections.
- Functions, modules, and built-in functions.
- How to install the PySimple GUI.
- How to install PyInstaller.
- How to create and work with popups.
- How to create and work with Elements (buttons, sliders, checkbox, etc).
- How to create and work with Windows.
- How to create and work with Layouts.
- How to create dynamic Layouts.
- How to show and hide elements.
- How to add and remove elements to the window while it is running.
