Description

PySide offers Python bindings to the Qt libraries. This allows rapid development of great UI-based Python applications. With the addition of QML in Qt 4.7, this now gives developers a chance to develop touch-based, rich applications directly with Python. This talk introduces PySide development, combined with QML, and shows some real-world examples of mobile PySide applications.

This talk is based on my PySide/QML on MeeGo tutorials, and shows some of the possibilities. It is aimed at Python developers looking for a GUI toolkit to create fluent, hardware-accelerated cross-platform UIs using QML.
