This session will demonstrate the process of building cross-platform Python applications with graphical user interfaces using the PythonCard framework and tool set. By giving you access to the full power of Python without requiring you to master complex GUI libraries, PythonCard becomes a power tool for scripting users and professional programmers alike. Creating graphical desktop applications that run across platforms and take advantage of Python's simple elegance is easier than you think. PyCrust, the embeddable Python shell, puts the power of the Python interpreter at your fingertips.

This session is a version of the introduction to PythonCard presentation given at OSCON 2005 and the UK Python conference in 2003.
