wxWidgets framework is simillar with Microsoft Foundation Class (MFC) Visual C++. If you familiar with Visual C++, then you can easelly working with wxWidgets. The following table shows the simillarity between wxWidgets and MFC Visual C++ class.

A good step for starting using wxWidgets can be done by reading this article:

After understanding the first concept, then we can directly using Rapid Application Development (RAD) or visual programming based on wxWidgets. Click the following link to read my review about several possible RAD software.
