There are a few useful tools/IDEs available on Linux to develop GUI
applications. They are all similar in features. In this talk Daniel
Jitnah will briefly talk about how GUI applications work, and what are
the toolkits available: GTK, QT and Tk as examples. He will also
demonstrate how a very simple GUI application can be built. The IDEs
used will be QTDesigner, Lazarus, Anjuta+Glade and Netbeans.

Daniel Jitnah is currently vice-president of LUV. He has a particular
interest in free software in education, and has been using Linux for
over 15 years as his main operating system. He claims to have never used
a Microsoft OS on any of his machines as main OS.

There will also be the usual casual hands-on workshop, Linux
installation, configuration and assistance and advice. Bring your laptop
if you need help with a particular issue.

LUV would like to acknowledge Red Hat for their help in obtaining the
Buzzard Lecture Theatre venue and VPAC for hosting.

Linux Users of Victoria Inc., is an incorporated association,
registration number A0040056C.
