Hello! With the release of Qt6 versions of PyQt and PySide the course was getting a little crowded. So, today I've split the PySide tutorials into their own standalone PySide2 course and PySide6 course.
The tutorials have all been updated for PySide2 & PySide6, with some additional improvements based on the latest editions of the book.
