Python Object-Oriented Python Instant Objects Your first class

first_class.py - need help

Now, make an instance of your class named me.

Then print() out the name attribute of your instance.

first_class.py
class Student:
    name = "PAnkaj"
    me = student()
    print(me.name)

The issue is you are instantiating a class inside the class.

Class Student(object):
    name = "something"

me = Student()
print(me.name)

Notice how instantiation and the print function are outside the class.

I guess this will do it.

Class Student:
    name = "something"

me = Student()
print(me.name)
