We have a new free workshop aimed at A-level Computing teachers in London. It is being run (twice) by William Marsh at Queen Mary University of London (QMUL).
The first is running on Monday 29 June (5.30-7pm) and, due to popular demand, a second run of this event is happening on Monday 13 July (5.30-7pm). [Note that the two sessions are identical, please register for one OR the other].
Python is a popular language for elementary programming but it not so easy to write programs with a graphical user interface (GUI). This workshop will introduce GUI programming in Python, covering:
- the concepts common to all GUI frameworks: events, widgets and attributes
- the role of object-oriented programming in GUIs
- the choice of GUI frameworks (but looking mainly at tkinter, the default framework)
Time will be spent on practical work: computers are provided but bring your own laptop (with Python 3 installed) if you wish.
The workshop assumes knowledge of basic Python and is aimed at those with an interest in A level computing.
Because we are funded by the Mayor of London we prioritise London teachers on our events but all teachers are welcome.
