Tkinter is the built-in GUI package that comes with standard Python distributions. It is a cross-platform package, which means you build once and deploy everywhere. It is simple to use and intuitive in nature, making it suitable for programmers and non-programmers alike.This video will help you master the art of GUI programming.

It delivers the bigger picture of GUI programming by building real-world, productive, and fun applications such as a text editor, drum machine, game of chess, media player, drawing application, chat application, screen saver, port scanner, and many more. In every project, you will build on the skills acquired in the previous project and gain more expertise.

You will learn to write multi threaded programs, network programs, database driven programs and more. You will also get to know the modern best practices involved in writing GUI apps. With its rich source of sample code, you can build upon the knowledge gained with this video and use it in your own projects in the discipline of your choice.

Style and Approach

This is an easy-to-follow tutorial, full of hands-on examples of real-world GUI programs. The initial section is a must-read as it explains most of the things you need to get started with writing GUI programs with Tkinter. Each subsequent section is a standalone project that discusses some aspects of GUI programming in detail. These sections can be viewed sequentially or randomly depending upon your experience with Python.
