We'll cover the following

A class hierarchy is constructed to represent a set of hierarchically organized concepts (only). Typically, base classes act as interfaces. There are two major uses for hierarchies, often named implementation inheritance and interface inheritance.

C.121: If a base class is used as an interface, make it a pure abstract class

C.122: Use abstract classes as interfaces when the complete separation of interface and implementation is needed
