How do I create an instance of a class?
In Task 2, "Your first class", we are asked to create an instance of the class Student. I have made the class Student - how do I create an instance of it?
name = "Stefan"
From the python docs
Class instantiation uses function notation. Just pretend that the class object is a parameterless function that returns a new instance of the class. For example (assuming the above class):
x = MyClass()
creates a new instance of the class and assigns this object to the local variable x.
