Getting started with PyQt5

When learning to build GUI applications with Python the learning curve is pretty steep — there is a lot you need to know just to get something to work. Like writing any code, building PyQt GUI applications is all about thinking in the right way.

In this course I give you the fundamentals necessary to get you building PyQt applications as quickly as possible. By the end of the first 8 minute lesson you will have a running Qt application which we'll then customise as we go.

The 1½ hour video course is structured to follow the book but can be watched alone.
