UPDATE: I have this interesting question by one of my blog reader, Riky Lutfi Hamzah, via email : "Sometimes, I find it difficult to focus when learning something, including Python. I am very interested in Python and web development, but when I tried to start, I always tempted by other languages​​. Is there anything else that you can show to me, of why I have to learn Python? And how to focus on Python technology to developing applications?". I answer this question in the last section of this article. Hope it helps!

After almost half year blogging in this cool Pythonblogs platform, I realize that I never take into account that some visitors maybe a total beginner to Python. Or even, a total beginner in software development in general. I think I am enjoying pouring all my experience in Python and rather neglect the thought, "What happen if persons who are totally new to software development, somehow got stumbled to my blog?". I realize this thought, when in my previous article is the first time I officially talk about what is Python module and Python package: I neglect a very important concepts of Python software development.

If you reading this, chance are that you are in your initial process of trying to master software development in general, or Python software development in particular. I will use this series to publish a very quick article, but still highly practical, that if applied, will help you master this broad topic of software development process. I am not a lecture, got to remind you though. But, I always have this keen interest of trying hard to transfer the passion of developing software and pour all of my gathered knowledge to anyone who have the potential to learn programming.

There will be a general concept of software development for sure. But Python will always be the main programming language being use to demonstrate the discussed concept. Although having said this, I may have a sidebar that talk how other programming language (that I know of) implement it. And, as always, I will make sure that each chapter come with a code example that you can clearly follow and test in your own computer.

Great. What are we waiting for? Let's do this!


Developing Cross Platform Application using Qt, PyQt and PySide : Introduction - Part 1 of 5

Before we even begin this new article series, I would like to emphasize one thing : I would love to make this blog as a great starting point for you to learn many tidbits in Python software development. For example, even though what we learn is somewhat an advance topic in Python application development, I will always start with the basic. This eventually create a vast array of article series : Flask, Django, ProgrammedMe, Kivy, etc. The reason is quite simple : if you are new to a Python topic, you can always refer to the first article in a series to be able to follow the rest of the articles. 

In this new article series, the target that I want to accomplished is to introduce you to the Python Android application development using either PySide or PyQt. Yes, previously you have been introduced to Kivy to develop Python application in Android. But, before going even further in Kivy, lets have a comparative experience on Python application development using another libray : PySide/PyQt. This come with a requirement : you must be introduced to and able to develop a PySide/PyQt application in its Desktop environment. Then, we move to its Android development.This is necessary, as differ with Kivy that directly support mobile application development in its first inception, Qt support in mobile development was gradually introduced.

Great. What are you waiting for? Lets go!
