Building GUI Applications With PythonCard And PyCrust
Patrick O'Brien, Orbtech
Kevin Altis, PythonCard

Track: Python
Date: Thursday, July 25
Time: 1:45pm - 2:30pm
Location: Marina IV

In this session, co-presenters Kevin Altis and Patrick O'Brien of the PythonCard development team will demonstrate the process of building full-blown Python applications with world-class graphical user interfaces. By giving you access to the full power of Python without requiring you to master complex GUI libraries, PythonCard becomes a power tool for scripting users and professional programmers alike. Creating graphical desktop applications that run across platforms and take advantage of Python's simple elegance is easier than you think. And PyCrust, the embeddable Python shell, puts the power of the Python interpreter at your fingertips. That means every GUI widget in your application can be inspected and manipulated from the PyCrust shell while your application is running. The combination of PyCrust and PythonCard brings the power and flexibility of Python to the realm of cross-platform GUI applications.
