CCATP #640 – Bart Busschots on PBS 97 — Class Data Attributes & Functions

I’m not going to lie to you guys, this episode of Programming By Stealth was pretty rough for me. It builds on the foundation Bart laid in PBS 95 where he introduced Getters and Setters and it was pretty clear that this previous lesson had not sunk in for me yet. I’ll definitely have to go back and study PBS 95 a couple more times and get a chance to practice this Getter/Setter concept before the penny will drop. Hopefully you understood it better than I did the first time through!

In any case, in PBS 97, we extend that knowledge to learning about class data attributes and functions. We’ll learn the “static” nomenclature, which is used to mark attributes and functions as belonging to the class rather than the instances of a class.

Bart spends most of the lesson on a worked example using emoji to create what he playfully calls a Nerdtouche, as a head nod to the cartouche used by Egyptian Pharoahs. And yes, he manages to work the poop emoji into this lesson.
