So...

Let's start!

Hi, I'm Marta, I am a OPW intern. I want to write a "0 Beginners Tutorial" for using Gtk+ in Python.

How did I end up here? I wish I knew... no, wait: I know! It was something along the lines of...

No balloon, so far, but a lot of fun!

(This great cartoon was found here! Always give credit where credit's due...)

Thanks to my mentor Tiffany, in the last weeks I have already begun playing with Gtk+ and Python. So far: a Button, a Label and and Image (note to self: next time, do them in reverse order, easier to harder - although label and image have more or less the same difficulty); and a window using MessageDialog and one with a Dialog (note to self: as above - although I understand [but maybe I'm wrong! If so, please tell me in the comments!] that MessageDialog is the "easy" version, writing the Dialog was much easier).

And now: off to do something! There are still a lot of examples that need to be done...
