Course Description

If you're learning computer programming, you need to know what object-oriented programming (OOP) is. One of the most prolific and frequently used programming paradigms, OOP has many benefits, such as code reusability, maintenance, scalability, and collaboration. The pragmatic structure of OOP means you can build large and complex programs with ease and efficiency.

Use this course to examine what comprises OOP, including its use of objects and its core features of inheritance, encapsulation, and polymorphism. Distinguish between OOP and another standard programming paradigm, procedural programming. Finally, explore the most popular OOP languages and begin writing programs using three of these.

Upon completion, you'll recognize how to use object-oriented programming to build versatile computer programs.
