This is not a beginners course! This is a followup to the Udemy Qt 5 Core for beginners and intermediate users and picks up where they both left off. In this course you will learn how to work with threads, sockets, libraries, plugins, unit testing, and application deployment across multiple operating systems. This course overs Qt 5. Because Qt 6 has so many changes, I will re-record these lessons using Qt 6 and place them into a different course, check my instructor profile for updates.

Learn Python GUI programming using Qt framework

Learn Python GUI programming and design powerful GUI applications using a great cross-platform framework called Qt.

Created by Bo Milanovich - Your Python GUI mechanic


Students: 15958, Price: $19.99

Students: 15958, Price:  Paid

This course is about Python GUI programming and building GUI applications using Python and Qt framework. We will see how we can build powerful desktop applications using nothing but Python and one of its Qt bindings.

For every app that we write in the Python GUI programming course, the source will freely be available on Github.

We will be using Python 2.7.3 and PyCharm IDE, however, minimal (if any) code adaptations are necessary if you are using Python 3.x. The PyCharm IDE, while having a 30 day free trial, is not necessary at all.

You should take this Python GUI programming course if you're interested in learning more about how to write "real-world" GUI applications with Python, or if you're just curious and want to learn more!

Qt 5 Design Patterns

This is an advanced course that covers design patterns using Qt 5 and C++. It is strongly advised you do not attempt this course until you have completed all the prerequisites -see my other courses on Udemy if you need a refresher.

Awarded Content Creator in the 2020 Qt Champion Awards:

"Bryan has a few courses available on Udmey, specifically his course on Qt 5 Design Patterns and also has a popular group on Facebook which helps others with their Qt questions as well. For his work alone in creating the Qt 5 training course online for everyone to benefit from it was easy to make him our year's Content Creator."

In software engineering, a design pattern is a general repeatable solution to a commonly occurring problem in software design - a design pattern is not a finished application but rather a tool the developer can use across any software framework. Design patterns can speed up the development process by providing tested, proven development paradigms. Effective software design requires considering issues that may not become visible until later in the implementation. Reusing design patterns helps to prevent subtle issues that can cause major problems and improves code readability for coders and architects familiar with the patterns.

The goal of this course is to teach the student how to use design patterns in Qt 5 with C++ along with an understanding of issues specific to Qt 5. We will use a wide range of Qt technologies from Widgets, QML, sockets, server, threading, io, streams, processes, and the State Machine Framework. This course will cover traditional design patterns along with looking at common problems and solutions specific for Qt 5.

These videos are filmed live and unedited, the student will see every single step, mistake and correction - the result is the same as if sitting in a classroom watching in real time.

This course will take you from zero to a level where you can write any Qt C++ Gui application you may want. It is aimed at complete beginners but people with varying levels of experience wishing to learn Qt C++ Gui will equally find it useful.

Qt is second to none in the field of building cross platform GUI application based on C++. It can currently be used to build software that runs on virtually any platform out there: Windows, Mac, Linux, Android, IOS and even embedded systems. You basically build your software once and all you have to do is build it for your desired platform and voila !

The course starts with a complete beginner to both C++ and Qt in mind, and we take  you through the the process of getting your environment set up on your platform of choice :

  • We do a live install of Qt Creator on Windows

  • We do a live install of Qt Creator on Linux

  • We guide you though how you would install Qt Creator on a Mac

  • We guide you through Qt Creator showing you the tools that work together to get your application built

We then take you on a tour of the C++ programming language, covering the concepts deemed important to start working with Qt to build your shinny GUI applications. You don't need to be a C++ wizard to start writing your applications using Qt. One of the goals behind Qt itself is to be as easy to use as possible, helping you to focus on your application logic rather than the C++ complex plumbing. This does not mean that you can do with zero C++ knowledge though. That's why we take you on a tour to cover the basic concepts of the language covering topics like:

  • Running your first console application and understanding the main function

  • Streams that help you write and read data from your C++ applications

  • Variables and Data Types

  • Basic C++ Operators and Control flow where among other things you learn about if clauses and loops

  • Build an app to guess numbers and put together the concepts learned so far

  • C++ Functions

  • C++ classes

  • Building your first Qt C++ GUI Application

  • Building a GUI Version of your Number guessing game

We then visit the fascinating concept signals and slots in Qt where  you learn the most flexible way to respond to events : 

  • We'll explore lambda functions in C++ in general, we'll need them to use their SIGNAL SLOT syntax

  • We explore different ways to connect signals to slots in Qt

  • We then do a concept enforcing demo for you to try them out

Next we dive in the Qt Widgets section and visit some of the most important widget classes in Qt : 

  • QWiget

  • QMainWindow

  • QMessageBox

  • QPushButton

  • QLineEdit

  • QTextEdit

  • QLabel

  • QHBoxLayout, QVBoxLayout, QGridLayout

  • We visit size policies and stretches and how they help tie the knots in  your layouts

  • QCheckBox and QRadioButton

  • QList

  • QComboBox

  • QListWidget

  • QTabWidget

  • QMenu, QToolBar, QAction

Dialogs are explored next , we look at QDialog and how to build  your own custom dialog class from scratch , QDialogButtonBox, QMessageBox, QFontDialog, QFileDialog, QInputDialog and how they add a layer of interactivity to your Qt GUI applications.

We then go on and explore how to work with the Qt Resource System , Styling your Qt applications with QStyle, QPalette and Style Sheets, Saving your application settings with QSetting, Working with Files and Directories using QFile and QDir and we wrap up the course with a tour of the network capabilities of Qt where we : 

  • See the different classes that are available to work with networks in Qt

  • Build an application to download web pages in our Qt Applications

  • Build an application to consume Rest APIs in your Qt Applications

This course was designed to help you succeed in becoming a Qt Gui application developer regardless of your current level of expertise. The only requirement is to bring in an open mind and a strong willingness to learn. Now, please check out some of the preview videos andl let's get you STARTED building cross platform GUI applications using Qt.
