How would a class work without a constructor, this is not even mentioned in a video!

One question says that a class does not need a constructor, but in the videos its shown as a vital part, there would be no way to set properties??

Hey Don McGregor, thanks for pointing this out! In the documentation, it mentions that if you do not provide a constructor the default constructor will be used.
