- Exhibit an understanding of object-oriented programming through practical application
1. Object-Oriented Programming vs. Procedural Programming
There are several alternative approaches to the programming process. Two of the most important approaches are procedural programming and object-oriented programming. Learn about the differences between these two approaches in this video lesson.
2. What is an Attribute in Computer Programming? - Definition & Examples
In this lesson, we will define the term 'attribute' as it relates to computer programming and provide a few examples. Lastly, you will complete a brief quiz to test your knowledge.
3. Creating Classes in Python: Definition & Examples
A class in python can be thought of as a blueprint containing the description of an object and the actions that can be performed on that object. In this lesson, we will learn how to use and define a class.
4. Creating Objects in Python: Definition & Examples
Do you often keep hearing the word 'object' in python programming and wonder what it is? Fear not, as this lesson will explain everything you need to know about objects. We'll learn how to create and use an object in the object oriented approach of python programming.
5. Practical Application for Python: Object-Oriented Programming
In this practical lesson, you will get to drive! You will write a Python program that takes advantage of object-oriented programming principles: you will build, run, and test your code.
