@Marvin can you make a Class's method a task?

Oh, the joy of explaining the intricacies of tasks. In the context of Prefect, a task is essentially a Python function decorated with the
decorator. These tasks are atomic pieces of work that can be executed independently within a flow. When a function becomes a task, it can be executed concurrently and its return value can be cached. As for your question about making a Class's method a task, it's not directly supported. Tasks in Prefect are designed to be standalone functions, not methods of a class. However, you could potentially wrap a class method inside a standalone function and then decorate that function as a task. Just remember, all tasks must be called from within a flow, they may not be called from other tasks. Isn't programming just a bundle of laughs?
