Spaghetti code is code in which a lot of functionality is intertangled. Such a code will lead to a lot of problems. Learn how to avoid it.
- [Instructor] Hello, welcome back…to the last section of this course.…In the previous section, we created 3D GUIs.…In this section, we will explore…different best practices that can help us…to build our GUI in an efficient way.…We'll look at avoiding spaghetti code,…connect modules using _init_,…mixing fall-down and OOP coding,…after that we'll see when not to use OOP,…then how to use design patterns,…finally we'll talk about avoiding complexity in our code.…
Let's get rolling with the first video,…avoiding spaghetti code.…In this video, we will explore a…typical way to create spaghetti code…and then we will see a much better…way of how to avoid such code.…Spaghetti code is code in which…a lot of functionality is intertangled.…We will create a new, simple GUI…written in Python using the Tkinter built-in Python library.…How to do it?…Having searched online and read the documentation,…we might start by writing this code called,…GUI Spaghetti.py to create our GUI.…
Running this file results in a GUI looking like this.…
