Once your code gets larger, you need to advance to coding in OOP. This is because OOP gives us great flexibility in organizing your code. Once you use classes, you no longer have to physically place code above the code that calls it.
- [Instructor] In the previous video,…we looked at using global variables.…This video deals with improving the GUI…by coding in classes.…In this video, we're going to refactor our procedural code…into an OOP code.…So far, we have been coding in a procedural style.…This is a quick scripting method from Python.…Once our code gets larger and larger,…we need to advance to coding in OOP.…Why?…Among many other benefits,…OOP allows us to move code around by using methods.…
Once we use classes,…we no longer have to physically place code…above the code that calls it.…This gives us great flexibility in organizing our code.…We can write related code next to other code…and no longer have to worry that the code will not run…because the code does not sit above the code that calls it.…We could take that to some rather fancy extremes…by coding up modules that refer to methods…that are not being created within that module.…They rely on the runtime state,…having created those methods during the time the code runs.…
If the methods we call have not been created by that time,…
