Bit of background on me, I’m currently in my final year of a programming-based degree. It has a more specialised focus on using what is taught and applying it to game engines & programming, but at its core is teaching good practice and technique within programming languages.
We recently did a non-programmers introduction to Python; if you’re interested in learning more about the programming language, I’d heavily recommend you go to check it out as it’s a very soft approach to learning about programming, without the actual need to learn code itself. In the comments of last weeks post however, one of our readers, , asked us if we could do a sort of introduction to OOP, which is a principle that is often used in programming. Considering my first home-taught language was Java, which really is one of the strictest OOP languages I can think of, it’s fair to say I’m relatively experienced in it. I’m no expert, but I’m back once again to give you a non-programmers insight to this programming principle. What is OOP all about and how is it different to other styles of code?
