Introduction to Shiboken, the Qt for Python C++ Wrapper

Due to technical issues this video did not get recorded and is using a QtWS20 recording with similar content.

Shiboken is the Python binding generator used to create the PySide module of Qt for Python, enabling users to access the power of the Qt C++ API from Python. But it also can be used directly by users to create their own Python bindings. This talk will review the process of generating a Python module for accessing your own C++ library with Shiboken, and why it might be a good choice for creating bindings when working on a Qt-derived application.
