I am a computer scientist in my past profession. I program for fun, for the intellectual challenge.
Usually I blog about process: how to do something in programming. Recently, about various aspects of compiling and publishing an app. My blogs are mostly droll unless you’re a programmer who writes object oriented, GUI programs using a high level language such as Python, and intend to distribute your apps widely.
One of my projects is a 2D drawing app (Pensool) using:
- Python (language),
- Qt (framework)
- PyQt (a Python to Qt binding)
- pyqtdeploy (a tool for compiling Python apps for many platforms
2D drawing apps are common as mud, but Pensool has a unique user interface that should be portable across desktop and mobile (phone) platforms. So I am interested in:
- universal user interfaces (using mouse or multi-touch)
- cross compiling to Android and iOS
