Webinar: “A Look At — and Inside — Textual” with Will McGugan
Want a UI for your application? Python has had GUI choices for decades. But what if your UI is in a terminal? And not just a command-line interface, but a full-screen application with a text UI? What does a “Text UI” even mean?
- September 21, 2021
- 6PM CEST, 5PM BST, 12PM EDT
- Audience: beginners (first half) and intermediate (second half)
This is actually two webinars rolled into one. In the first half, we’ll explain Textual and show some demo applications, taking questions and comments as we go. In the second half, we’ll take a peek inside the code to show how it is implemented, getting commentary from Will about decisions he made (and future work.)
We’ll also discuss his new job arrangement. On September 1, Will announced he is pausing his commercial work to focus on his open source projects such as Rich, PyFilesystem, and Textual. He’s hoping to show that sponsorship can prove viable. We would like to use this webinar to round up some contributors.
