here is a very good documentation about Tkinter and its most likely that 
the same principals of coding apply to Python 3.x when it comes down to 
the Tkinter part:

Also as an tip, you can make use of a StringVar object for example - 
those are (if Im not completely wrong) meant to hold values which you 
can then access from the interface. Alike a binding to any element 
holding text. Which should take care of the updating part if you call a 
proper "StringVar/yourVariableName".set method of that particular class.

As for the UI creation, have a look at that documentation, its very easy 
to navigate inside if you know what you are looking for.
