Here in how to create an instance of a class, as described herein, how to create a class in Python, we will further explore the instance of class and how this can be used within a program to assign values to an object. This allows that object to inherit those values contained within the class, making it easier to have consistency regards functionality and data.
This video covers off
(a) creating an instance of a class
(B) Using the __init__ within the class
(C) define the constructor method __init__
(D) Creating an object that calls a class and uses the class to process some piece of data.
What are the benefits of this?
- You only need to create one class that holds all the attributes required.
- That class can be called from anywhere within a program, once an instance of it is created.
- You can update the class, and once completed, those new values will become available to an instance of that class.
- Makes for better management of objects and their properties, not multiple different versions contained within a program
