Python is an object-oriented programming language in which objects are made up of properties and methods. In this video, explore the basics of this concept, such as how to use objects and access their properties and methods by using dot notation.
- [Instructor] Before we get into more complex…Python scripts, let's have a look at the concept…of Object-Oriented Programming to learn how…dot notation and classes work.…To define Object-Oriented Programming,…it is a software programming methodology…which separates software development…into different objects containing their own logic.…Python adopts the Object-Oriented Programming…concept like most modern programming languages.…This concept enables programs to become simpler,…as the program can be broken up into different objects…containing their own self-contained code.…
Take a piece of software designed…to create geometry, for example.…When thinking of geometry, we tend to think of ideas…associated with geometry, such as a point, a curve,…or a cube.…These are all concepts that can be defined…by their location in space, distance,…or number of sides.…It is these ideas that we can use to begin…forming the software.…Each of these ideas become objects,…and each of these objects contain…their own attributes describing the object's…
