The Digital Technologies curriculum encourages the implementation of modular programs using an object-oriented programming language (ACTDIP041).
The elaborations for this content descriptor suggest “defining classes that represent the attributes and behaviour of objects in the real world or in a game”.
In this presentation Dr Martin Cooper will address this by leading you through creating a very simple virtual pet using Python Object Oriented Programming.
You will learn how to:
- Create a class to define an object;
- Create attributes for objects;
- Write methods for objects and;
- Instantiate objects from a class.
