December 15, 2018 – SIG-Programming: Python (Nov meeting cancelled)

snake-312561_1280

Topic: Python:

At the last meeting, we learned a little bit about PyQt a tool that assists you to create windows, buttons, text boxes, etc. in Python programs. This is an alternative to Tkinter which we have also learned a little bit about. Tkinter does similar things to PyQt but does not give you the fancy user interface.

All are welcome to attend.

Where: Richard Jackson’s home. Call Richard Jackson at 248-546-3694 for directions.

When: Saturday, December 15, 2018 at 2:00 P.M.
