Object-oriented programming, or OOP, is a way to organise code by grouping similar features and operations into distinct entities.
Objects may be thought of conceptually as analogous to the parts of a system. Programs may be compared to assembly lines in factories. A system component performs some material processing at each stage of the assembly line, converting raw materials into the final product.
An object has both data and behaviour, such as the information on the raw or preprocessed materials used at each stage of an assembly line’s production process. Learn from this video tutorial on how to:
