Types of class methods
Topics: class methods, instance methods, static methods, using class methods as alternative constructors Updated 2020-10-03 Types of methods A class can have three types of methods: instance methods, class methods and static methods. Instance methods are the most common type of method. They take at least the parameter self as an input. This parameter points towards an instance of the class when the method is called. An instance method can modify both object state (through the self parameter) and class state indirectly (through the self.
Topics: object oriented programming, classes, inheritance I want to start with using some of the things I learned from the “Python Tricks” book (see my reading list for more details on the book). Therefore, I will start creating a little Magical Universe with classes and methods related to the Tales of Castle Kilmere. So let’s start with the most important basics. What is Object Oriented Programming ? Object-oriented programming (OOP) is a specific programming paradigm.
100 Days of code - Creating my personal Magical Universe
I have decided to take on a new habit using a technique I found on the ‘get discplined’ subreddit. The technique works as follows: Take a piece of paper or card Draw 6 vertical lines intersecting 6 horizontal lines. This creates a 7x7 grid of 49 squares Choose a daily habit you want to work on and write it down on the back of the card Also put down WHY you want to work on the habit Start working on the habit TODAY!
The Tales of Castle Kilmere
My magical universe: “The Tales of Castle Kilmere” The main character of our magical universe is named Lissy Spinster. Lissy is a quiet, clumsy girl of age twelve. Although she is sticking her nose into books most of the time, she is always watching her surroundings very closely. Lissy and her older brother Gary don’t get along very well. Gary considers his sister a little weird and is spending most of his time outside, playing broom socker with his friends.
My path to machine learning
My enthusiasm for machine learning arose from my fascination for the human brain. I have been fascinated by the complexity of the human brain for most of my life. Consequently, I decided to study cognitive science in Osnabrück, Germany. After attending a machine learning class in my fourth semester I discovered my true passion: The study and delevopment of algorithms that can learn on their own, developing a sense of intelligence.
