Creating and Using Python Classes
As we work on more and more complex problems, we need to start creating custom types to have manageable models for the data we're working with. Python is an object-oriented programming language, and creating classes is something we will do frequently to solve problems using Python. In this hands-on lab, we'll define a custom class with some functionality and attributes that will allow us to model an
Employee in our code. The
using_classes.py script includes code that will utilize this class and provide us with some feedback to know if we've created a class that meets our requirements. To feel comfortable completing this lab, you'll want to know how to create and use Python classes (watch the "Creating and Using Python Classes" video from the Certified Associate in Python Programming Certification course).
