In this installment of Programming By Stealth, Bart teaches us about inheritance (relationships between classes) and polymorphism. Now he said polymorphism is a concept that throws most first-level college students, but in an odd twist, I didn’t find it confusing at all! Plus, he lets us play with cows, ducks and turkeys in his example so it’s loads of fun.
We also have a great new study tool created by Dorothy, aka MacLurker. She created an index of terms so you can jump right to the blog post where Bart talked about the term. I’ve been using it and it’s grand! You might want to bookmark podfeet.com/blog/pbs-index.
Bart’s excellent written tutorial for this installment is available here: bartbusschots.ie/…
Bart Busschots joins us again for part 7 of his series Programming by Stealth. In this instalment we’ll build on our basic understanding of CSS from previous instalment. We’ll start with some new CSS selectors, in the process, introduce two new HTML tag attributes, then we’ll move on to the CSS box model. Each HTML tag is represented in the page as a box, and all those boxes can be manipulated with CSS.
