Look inside
In this liveProject, you’ll explore how inheritance works in Python through developing classes that might be used in a simple video game. Your game follows animal characters moving through an obstacle course, with different movement styles for wolves, bears, eagles, ducks, frogs, and trout. In order to avoid having to repeat your code between characters, you’ll create some base classes and inherit from them. You’ll see how to inherit from more than one class at a time, and discover use cases for multiple inheritance.
This project is designed for learning purposes and is not a complete, production-ready application or solution.

book resources

When you start your liveProject, you get full access to the following books for 90 days.
