Tkinter is Python's de facto standard GUI (Graphical User Interface) package. It is a thin object-oriented layer on top of Tcl/Tk. Tkinter is not the only GUI Programming toolkit for Python; it is, however, the most commonly used one.

Tkinter GUI Application Development Hotshot helps readers to learn how to work with external libraries and Tkinter extensions along with structuring programs in the model-view framework. Readers can also master how to integrate GUI applications to a backend database, refactor code at every stage of application development, and also maintain their application data with object serialization. This book also gives the reader instructions on how to apply internationalization to GUI applications and develop a GUI program framework for maximum code reuse and rapid application development.
