Does this course show us a little bit on how to make a gui? I'm about 1/2 way done and i was curious because maybe later on I'd like to make the hangman game in ps2(i think), for example, a little more user friendly.

    I gave a quick glance through the assignments I've not done yet and it appears that the majority of the course focuses on solving problems, not so much on prettying up the user interface. It does make some sense. I mean, I can't think of any of the lectures it'd make sense to remove in favor of more gui coverage. But, by the end you'll have a reasonable understanding of how to solve problems in python but little, if any, exposure to creating GUIs with it unless you augment the course with a bit of self study in that area. I would recommend looking at Tkinter once you've finished the lessons on classes. Some good places to look: http://wiki.python.org/moin/TkInter http://thinkingtkinter.sourceforge.net/ http://www.tkdocs.com/tutorial/index.html (this one is for tk which underlies Tkinter0 http://tkinter.unpythonic.net/wiki/ Also of interest (to me at least) is pygame for which a wealth of information may be found here: http://thepythongamebook.com/en:start http://www.pygame.org/news.html (egads these people love green, but there's a lot of useful links) Also, while googling all this I found something delightfully interesting: http://www.pyweek.org/ I'm totally signing up for that. I better get back to learning python or I'll never be ready in time :D

    ok thanks @RoamingBlue and your right, I'd rather know how to problem solve using python before I can make everything look pretty xP and that's probably what I'm going to do, read up on gui's after this course. :D happy learning!
