There are some tutorials mentioned in the official python wiki . Then
there is the PyQt wiki , which as a section dedicated to tutorials .
Moreover I absolutely recommend to read the reference gui from riverbank
computing . At last, you should always keep the official docs at hand.
They contain plenty of good tutorials and background documents about
different Qt4 techniques, that are _definitely_ worth reading. Code
samples and API docs are of course kept in C++, but transferring these to
Python is mostly easy, the differences are not that big.
So you see, there's more than enough PyQt4 stuff out there ;)
But the most important thing to do at the transition from Tk to Qt4 goes
first, before you start digging any Qt4 specific document: Forget
everything, you learned about GUI programming with Tk. Qt4 works complety
Freedom is always the freedom of dissenters.
