Object-Oriented Programming  
  • Okay, so by the late 1980s, the software industry was beginning to get seriously bogged down by spaghettification and was looking for some real answers.

  • Enter Object Oriented Programming (OOP)

  • OOP was built to help manage the complexification of software through abstraction. In OOP, you build small, self-contained bits of code which correspond more closely to how you think about your program and how your program mirrors the real world.

  • OOP provides abstraction through four foundation concepts:

    • Objects
    • Encapsulation
    • Inheritance
    • Polymorphism
