Modern PyQt: Create GUI Applications for Project Management, Computer Vision, and Data Analysis

Willman, Joshua



Dive into GUI application development and create useful applications for practical and relevant topics in the fields of business, computer science, and research. This book uses a realistic approach to help get you started designing and building the applications you need while learning new tools along the way.

PyQt has a vast collection of tools that you can use to create GUIs, many of which seem to go unexplored. In Modern PyQt, you will go beyond some of the fundamental topics of GUI development in order to begin building useful desktop applications. Through extensive examples and hands-on projects, you will explore how to make applications for data analysis and visualization using graphs, computer vision with OpenCV and PyQt, the basics of networking, handling databases with SQL, and more


Whether you are looking for new ideas to practice your skills as a programmer or you have a specific goal in mind and need some help to get your ideas off the ground, there is something in Modern PyQt for you



What You Will Learn

  • Create cross-platform GUIs with Python and PyQt.
  • Understand the important PyQt classes, widgets, and concepts needed for building interactive and practical applications.
  • Find out how to embed useful Python modules into your applications to create more advanced GUIs.
  • Build useful applications that you can improve or make into something completely new with Python and PyQt.









Who This Book Is For
Intermediate level programmers or above in Python. GUI developers with some experience designing GUIs. Even if they have never used PyQt before, the concepts learned from other toolkits, such as Tkinter or wxPython, can be carried over for developing applications with using PyQt.





Joshua Willman began using Python in 2015 when he needed to build neural networks using machine learning libraries for image classification. While building large image data sets for his research, he needed to build a GUI that would simplify the workload and labeling process, which introduced him to PyQt. Since then, he has tried to dive into everything that is Python. He currently works as a Python developer, building projects to help others learn more about coding in Python for game development, AI and machine learning, and programming using micro-controllers. More recently, he set up the site to explore his and others' interests in utilizing programming for creativity.

He is also the author of Beginning PyQt: A Hands-on Approach to GUI Programming.
