Kivy is an open source framework for developing apps for natural user interfaces such as touch screens and multi-touch displays. The Kivy framework is platform independent. Implementations exist for Android, iOS, Linux, Mac OS-X, and Windows. The programming language Python is used to develop apps based on Kivy. Since Kivy sits on top of OpenGL, it is very well suited for graphics applications such as games or information displays. Kivy can be used both to develop prototypes as well as products that are available through the usual app stores. In this talk you will learn all the basics about the Kivy framework including live demonstrations of some Kivy-based apps. We will also show how you can package Kivy-based apps to distribute via app stores. Some examples for real-world apps shows you how we are using Kivy to develop prototypes and products for health, medicine and biology. Of course, you learn about benefits and limitations of using Kivy for app development.
