The Introduction to Object Oriented Programming training course provides an overview of key OO concepts, including: class, object, encapsulation and abstraction. Instead of moving quickly through complex OO concepts, the Introduction to Object Oriented Programming training examines the key concepts and their impact on system design and implementation.
The Introduction to OO Programming course uses a collaborative team-based approach to facilitate learning of OO concepts.
- What is Object Oriented Programming?
- History, Evolution, and Motivations of OO Programming
- Overview of Object Oriented Programming process
- Object Oriented concepts: class, object, instantiation
- Understanding the impact of loose-coupled v. tight-coupled systems
- Understanding the impact of high-cohesion v. low-cohesion systems
