PySide and Scientific GUIs

Date Time: John Ehresman, Corran Webster

Help build more stable and complete support for scientific graphical user interfaces. There will be a particular focus on improvements to the PySide wrappers around the Qt library, as well as improvements to the Enaml framework.

One of the main goals of the PySide sprint is to help developers get familiar with the C++ parts of the implementation so they can submit patches and otherwise help out with PySide. The more developers who are able to get over the initial learning curve of the project and have the skills and the desire to help out, the easier it will be to keep the project moving forward in the future. Python developers who use PySide in their applications will also be welcome, but focus of the sprint will be on fixing bugs and improving the C++ implementation.
