Creating desktop applications in Python

Desktop applications are software programs that run on a computer's desktop and provide functionality to the user. These applications can range from simple programs like text editors to more complex ones like video editing software.

To get started, we first need to install a GUI (graphical user interface) library for Python. There are several libraries available, but two of the most popular ones are Tkinter and PyQt. Tkinter is a built-in library that comes with Python and is easy to use, but it may not have as many features as PyQt. PyQt, on the other hand, is a third-party library that offers more advanced features but can be more difficult to learn.

Here is an example of a simple Tkinter-based desktop application that displays a window with a button:

Micro Frontends: Microservices for the Frontend

Micro frontends are what we get when we bring the microservice approach to the front end. In other words, a micro frontend is made of components owned by different teams — that can be deployed independently. These components are assembled to create a consistent user experience.

With a micro frontend, no single team owns the UI in its entirety. Instead, every team owns a piece of the screen, page, or content. For example, one team might be responsible for the search box, while another might code suggestions based on users' tastes.

Innovative and technological development as one of the priority issues of higher education institutions

Introduction

Recently, universities are experiencing a crisis. Since the role of universities among young people is decreasing, young people who have received General secondary education do not see the need to get a higher education, they believe that in order to master a particular specialty, it is enough to take courses online or offline and read a couple of books on the specialty. The main task of the university and higher education in General is to provide a person with extensive knowledge from various fields, so that a person develops a complete picture of the world and culture, as well as systematic and critical thinking. The main task of the university is to teach students to learn, and only then, in the last years, to give them the necessary skills for a certain field of activity. Therefore, university education should be extensive, and a narrow focus on the profession - only its completion.

Thus, the role of universities should not be underestimated, since they play an important role not only in the field of higher education itself, but also affect other important areas of life in modern society. However, this article defines the aspects and goals of the university in the innovation sector of the economy.

Tasks and challenges facing universities

The innovation process becomes more complex, and its stages overlap. In order for universities to earn money, it is necessary to link the University and the market and speed up the innovation process. To do this, at the earliest stage, it is necessary to create an environment in which ideas will be simultaneously created and selected. Thus, in the innovation and technology sector of the economy, the priority tasks of the University should include the following items: conducting research, various R&D, supplying high-tech products to the market, and initiating the creation of elements of innovative infrastructure. In this area, universities simultaneously have to cooperate and compete with the largest commercial state and non-state companies in the field of innovation. Industrial partners allow universities to raise funds through joint projects. The advantage of such cooperation is the practical focus of all innovative developments and research. The university receives the technological and production capabilities of the company, and the company, in turn, receives the results of research and innovative developments that can be implemented and used in production, which, ultimately, will lead to an increase in profits and the development of the innovative economy as a whole.
