This course is about Python GUI programming and building GUI applications using Python and Qt framework. We will see how we can build powerful desktop applications using nothing but Python and one of its Qt bindings.

For every app that we write in the Python GUI programming course, the source will freely be available on Github.

We will be using Python 2.7.3 and PyCharm IDE, however, minimal (if any) code adaptations are necessary if you are using Python 3.x. The PyCharm IDE, while having a 30 day free trial, is not necessary at all.

You should take this Python GUI programming course if you're interested in learning more about how to write "real-world" GUI applications with Python, or if you're just curious and want to learn more!

Who is the target audience?

Your Python GUI mechanic

A self-learning international student who is finishing his degree at a US university, a degree which is completely unrelated to Computer Science. Published several applications (both commercial and free) with great success.

Despite friends' suggestions to move to C# and/or other .NET languages, stuck with Python determined to build high-quality desktop apps using it. Thought to be crazy at first, now well respected in the circle of friends.
