Object-Oriented Programming in Python


About an OOP

OOP or Object Oriented Programming is a programming paradigm with the idea of a specific program organization when the programmer manipulates objects in the code.

OOP has such main principles:

  • Inheritance;
  • Encapsulation;
  • Polymorphism.


Class is like a custom data type or structure but allows you to keep more complex data.

Imagine your project requires cats representation. What do you know about them?

They have stable hair color, eyes color, a number of legs, for example. You can measure the cat's weight and the length of the tail. A cat can move and sleep, cry and eat, and give birth to another cat.

All these features can be interpreted and used in the class Cat.

The class is empty now and does nothing.
