As your code grows in complexity, you might want to refactor your functions into methods of a class. Learn how it's done.
Previously, we saw how to represent…Unicode characters in our GUI.…This is the fifth video,…"Designing a GUI in an Agile Fashion".…Here, we will first improve readability of our code…by grouping related import statements.…We'll next, break out the call back methods…into their own class and module,…in order to further reduce the complexity of our code.…The modern agile software development approach…to designing coding came out of the lessons learned…by software professionals.…
This method applies to a GUI,…as much as to any other code.…One of the main keys of agile software development,…is the continuously applied process of refactoring.…One practical example of how refactoring our code…can help us in our software development work,…is by first implementing…some simple functionality using functions.…As our code grows in complexity,…we might want to refactor our functions…into methods of a class.…This approach, will enable us…to remove global variables…and also be more flexible about…where inside the class we place methods.…
