Welcome to the highest-rated course on Udemy for learning to create desktop apps using Python GUI apps with Tkinter!

If you’re bored of creating console and text apps, you’ve come to the right place. We will help you take your apps to the next level by introducing Graphical User Interfaces that make your applications interesting and easy to use.

While everyone’s talking about using Python for machine learning, data science, or web development, they’re forgetting one massive use case: custom, specialized business tools.

There are so many companies, large and small, that do things for which there is no software. From manufacturing to small shops, medical practices, stores, film and movie studios… all of these struggle with a lack of technology in their industries. And for many of them, their in-house developers are often tasked with developing specific tools for specific use cases. GUIs help make their non-technical users more effective.

Here are a few more reasons to learn Tkinter:

  • Developing Python GUI applications using Tkinter will make your life much easier as a developer as the taught app structure is simple and straightforward

  • Tkinter applications can run almost anywhere and can be shared with others without requiring them to install Python

  • Python GUI apps made with Tkinter can look fully native to the Operating System, so they look and feel just like traditional desktop apps

  • Tkinter apps have full access to the user’s computer, which means you can store data locally, safely and securely

So what’s covered in the course?

This is the most comprehensive Tkinter course available on Udemy. We’ll look at how you can:

  • Layout your Tkinter apps using the two most popular methods: grid and pack

  • Use Tkinter frames for more complex layouts

  • Add shortcuts and keybindings to your Python GUI apps

  • Use Object-Oriented Programming with Tkinter, and create your own custom widgets

  • Add styles to Tkinter apps using the new Themed Tkinter Widgets

  • Use fonts extensively in Tkinter, including named fonts

  • Split Tkinter apps into multiple files so working with them becomes much easier

  • Connect to web APIs to send and receive data, stored in the cloud

  • Build games using Tkinter and the super-powerful Canvas widget

  • Package and distribute your applications so your users don’t need to install Python

We’ve also included a complete Python refresher for those of you new to Python (you’ll still need some programming experience, otherwise this course may be a bit advanced!).

And also a full reference of many Tkinter widgets that you can come back to whenever you need to use any of them, even after finishing the course

In addition, Tkinter is a great way to take your Python to the next level. It allows you to put your app ideas and make them a reality.
