Creating Objects
Start with ClassName:
camelCase not pot_hole_case
o caps, no spaces/underscores
Built-in Methods:
must have __init__ (don’t expect user to ever call)
aka constructor method
defines code that runs when new obj of this type is created
setup default parameter
o Returns desired output when object of this class is cast to a str or printed
Every method (built-in too) gets implicitly passed a copy of the obj itself
Don’t include in method call, method def’n
Allows objs to methods to access obj itself
