#2B1 - Useful Tools and Libraries - A beginner's guide to Kivy: a multi-touch GUI library for Python

Log in to save this to your schedule and see who's attending!

Kivy is an open-source Python library for rapid development of applications that make use of innovative user interfaces, such as multi-touch apps, and runs on a wide range of platforms. In this walkthrough, I will introduce the Kivy framework from a user's perspective, and construct a very simple application. Along the way, I will highlight some of the positive and negative features in my view, and demonstrate a selection of the available functionality. I will also talk briefly about a project I have recently worked on using Kivy, and demonstrate the final results, in order to demonstrate the capabilities of the library more fully.
