There has been always efforts to provide Python bindings for many popular C++ libraries and frameworks. This binding process is a complex task, and there has been many tools that tried to achieve t in different ways. Due to the complexity of some libraries, one needs to wisely choose the elements that will form this entire process. In the case of Qt, after a proper study, it became apparent that a custom solution was required, and this led to the creation of Shiboken, which is the bindings generator tool behind the Qt for Python project. In this talk, you will learn how to get started with many binding generation tools, but most importantly we will go step-by-step on how to start your own binding project using Shiboken.
