[PyQt] Best way to learn the complete pyqt5.

Well my method was to:

1) Use the documentation to get a base (but with the knowledge that they 
are not always correct)

2) Work on a project that explores the aspects of Python and Qt in a 
scaling fashion (small to eventually large)

3) Google aspects that I am having trouble with to get a broader base of 
collective knowledge (which may be incorrect)

4) Dive deeper into some Google searches to gather even more information

Note: When doing google searches I do not just reserve these to Python 
or Qt questions only but searching other methodologies because learning 
how to build a quality project is actually more important than learning 
a language to build it in. The rule is an application should be 75% time 
spent in design and 25% in actual coding -- the better your road map 
(design) the easier and quicker your trip (coding).
