About the author

Martin Fitzpatrick Senior Software Engineer

Developing PyQt apps for 8 years.

I have been developing PyQt5 apps for 8 years. Building desktop applications to make data-analysis tools more user-friendly, Python was the obvious choice. Starting with Tk, later moving to wxWidgets and finally adopting PyQt, I haven't looked back since.

I love the flexibility Python gives you to create fun and useful things quickly. Paired with Qt it's a great way to build professional apps on the desktop.
