Your first Python application for this series...

Your first Python application for this series...

Although in Part 5 of Developing Cross Platform Application using Qt, PyQt and PySide : GUI Application Development I already gave detailed steps on how to create Qt main window application, some readers still find it confusing. And someway I think they were right: that article was too confusing that it tries to compare C++ Qt, PyQt and PySide altogether. Some readers who asked me about how to start PyQt application, find that article is not much of a help. Therefore, in this article I am going to revisit that article and create a new one with this focus in mind : using PyQt 4, Qt Designer and PyCharm. I use Windows 8.1 to develop this application. For those who use other Operating System, feel free to adjust your working environment as needed.

The application itself, code named Northerd, as already mentioned in previous articles, is a productivity desktop application. It will sit in your system tray and assist you with any productivity tasks that I can think of and useful for my daily work.  It will have main window (of course), that how to build it, will be explained in great detail in this article.

If you are regular readers of this blog, I bet you have already know that the longest and completed tutorial series in this blog is the Flask Biography Application. What you are reading now, is future article series that will be in the same long and completeness as that Flask application. I hope you enjoyed this article series as much as you enjoyed The Flask tutorial series!

Great, lets get started!
