Did you know I'm a fan of GUIs. You know, they are kind of like web pages, but they run on your computer, they have their own windows, and you can even use them offline! On this episode, we'll dive into wxPython with Mike Driscoll. He's back on the podcast to share his hard-won experience on building and distributing Python Window-based applications.
