At the end of the day, it’s a way to implement your public interface to the world without your clients being exposed to the details. You have many options to implement that interface; code directly in the class, delegating to others (composition) or inheriting it.
Imagine parallel universes, there is the public one that clients exist in and another that the non-public stuff lives in. Both (potentially) have a need for inheritance either to represent a natural taxonomy (CheckingAccount isa Account, etc) or for reuse (Account inherits Persistent, Equatable). I say “potentially” because out of all the ways to implement your public interface, inheritance is by far the worst in my opinion - it’s the road to spaghetti code Wink | ;) .

Straw Poll

When building an application, when is the most important time to consider the User Experience?
They are the ones we write code for, right?
