Course Overview

Welcome to “Introduction to Inheritance and Polymorphism in Python”! This course aims to demystify two cornerstone concepts of object-oriented programming: inheritance and polymorphism. Through structured lessons, hands-on exercises, and real-world examples, you’ll gain a solid understanding of how to harness these features to write better, more maintainable Python code.

What You Will Learn

  • Single Inheritance: Discover the basics of inheriting attributes and methods from a single parent class to enhance code reuse and organization.
  • Multiple Inheritance: Learn how to implement classes that inherit from multiple parent classes, giving you the flexibility to craft more complex class structures.
  • Multilevel Inheritance: Explore the concept of chaining inheritance where a derived class serves as a base class for another class.
  • Hierarchical Inheritance: Understand how a single parent class can have multiple derived classes, demonstrating the principle of shared inheritance.
  • Hybrid Inheritance: Dive into the complexities of combining different inheritance models to build more robust and reusable code architectures.
  • Polymorphism: Gain insights into how Python enables objects to respond to the same interface in various ways, enhancing code flexibility and scalability.
    • Polymorphism Basics: Get an introduction to polymorphism principles and why they are crucial in object-oriented programming.
    • Function Polymorphism: Learn how functions can handle different data types seamlessly, providing great flexibility.
    • Class Polymorphism: See how different classes implement the same methods in diverse ways, allowing for dynamic and adaptable code design.
