GLUG/GLUGOT Session #11

Today on the GLUGOT meeting we had a session on "Basics on programming with gtk+ libraries". The session is by Nithya. She started from the very basics of what is gtk and so forth. There was a good explanation on widgets, signals and events. She explained with examples of creating windows and different widgets, packing them within the containers, setting signals to them, handling functions for these signals and compiling these gtk programs. There was exactly ten people to the meet. We discussed on few doubts, had some clarifications and I think everyone was clear at the last. As a whole it was an informative session for GNU GUI programmers.
