Class Variables vs. Instance Variables

When one defines a member variable in the class body definition, the interpreter considers it a class variable.

class Dog:

name: str = ‘Doggo’ # class variable

In the __init__ constructor, one does have access at the ‘name’ class variable using ‘self’. But as self represents the instance of the class, in the constructor scope, ‘self.name’ becomes an instance variable.

By deleting the ‘name’ attribute from a Dog instance, one can access the ‘name’ class variable once again.
