comment Can we avoid using SIP library when writing standalone QGIS python script
Try the updated script. If it doesn't work, paste what you are using. Did you replace the OSGEO4W_ROOT variable.

You don't have to do sys.path.extend. If you are getting no qgis.core the batch isn't 100% yet.

comment Does QGIS run on Windows Surface with Win RT OS?
Windows RT also has sansboxed applications so it's not just a matter of getting it running it on ARM. Windows RT is also dead so I would buy a Pro if you can.

This is a good solution. Nice and generic which is cool. Turn it into a function and you could walk a tree to make all the rules

comment How can a QGIS user plugin reflect the events of UI?
Please don't use the old connect method, it's pretty gross. Use new style self.widget.activated.connect(self.function)

Standalone is fine but the OP is writing plugins.

comment QGIS - Python errors not reporting to Python Console
Not sure I would do that because QGIS uses that to hook the exceptions to show other errors. A better option to dump logging information to the log window and not use the Python console.

comment Buffer Csv gets repeated when more than one feature is selected in mapcanvas in PYQGIS
Here is a quick refactor. I know you didn't ask for that but I find it normally helps to find issues gist.github.com/NathanW2/4de348da41113dbeba03

Another Tip: Avoid heavy nesting as it can make you code hard to read and debug. Sometimes a refactor can help find bugs.

Quick Tip: QgsMapLayerRegistry.instance().mapLayersByName('us_cities')[0] will give you the layer you need without the loop.
