Short Order Code #002 :: Collecting your inheritance

**_Content originally published August 27, 2009 for the_** **Short Order Code** **_podcast._**

In this episode Keith talks about a bit about object inheritance and provides some practical examples of situations you can use it in your code.

I know it’s something that everyone has talked about in their first-year OOP classes, but it’s surprising how often that knowledge seems to get left there, and not readily adapted to projects in the workplace. I’ll take a quick look at a few places where you can make effective use of inheritance and some real-world examples of how to make this methodology work for you in your apps.

Thanks to those of you who got back to me about some of the technical production on the first show, I’ve ditched the “swoosh” sounds in favour of something a bit more mellow. Enjoy!
