Overriding vs. Overloading

Both overriding and overloading are concepts in object-oriented programming that allow you to define methods with the same name but different behavior. However, they differ in their implementation and purpose. Overriding Overriding is a mechanism by which a subclass can provide a different implementation of a method that is already defined in its superclass. When a method is overridden, the subclass’s implementation takes precedence over the superclass’s implementation, allowing you to customize the behavior of the method for the specific subclass....

Namedtuple

The namedtuple function is a factory function from the collections module in Python that creates a new class-like object that behaves like a tuple, but with named fields. Here are some cases where you might consider using namedtuple: Improved readability: If you have a collection of records or objects that have a fixed set of attributes, using a namedtuple can make your code more readable by giving names to the fields instead of relying on integer indices....

Name Mangling

Name mangling is a feature in Python that is used to avoid naming conflicts in class hierarchies by adding a prefix to the name of a class member that starts with two underscores, but does not end with more than one underscore. When a member name is prefixed with two underscores, Python automatically rewrites the name in a way that makes it harder to access the member from outside the class....
