How to make a GUI | Intro to amazing GUIs with AutoHotkey in 2020

I’m so stoked to announce our Intro to GUIs with AutoHotkey course is now live!

Since I suck at GUIs I hired Isaias Baez (Raptor X / AHK Tuts on YouTube) to create the course and he did an amazing job!   Not only is it truly easy to follow, but the quality is top-notch!  In this course we show you how to make a GUI using the most proven GUIs in existence!

Not to boast but I truly believe GUIs are a great way to bring non-AutoHotkey people into AutoHotkey!

Have you ever given thought that, when we use AutoHotkey GUIs we’re able to use the most thoroughly tested GUIs on the planet?

Billions of people have used the Microsoft Windows GUIS!  Billions!

And we get to access them without learning a complicated language like C!  In my opinion AutoHotkey is the simplest language to learn!  What an amazing selling point!

While I don’t have extensive knowledge of other programming languages, I did try and use both Kivy and Tkinter with Python.  On a windows computer, installing Python can be a chore.  Add on the finding of specific libraries and keeping them tied to the instance of Python, us AutoHotkey programmers have it SOOOO easy!  Leveraging built-in Windows GUIs & Controls is HUGE!  Not to mention that we can just right-click a given script and have an executable in a couple of seconds!  Its crazy not to consider AutoHotkey as an alternative to Kivy and Tkinter / Python!

Anyone that’s wanted to learn how to make a GUI  but stayed away from them because they’re too “complex” should take a look at our course.  Btw You can always get a discounted code for any of our courses by going here or just use any of the links in this post.
