Finally, the course compares how code is written in several different languages, the libraries and frameworks that have grown around them, and the reasons to choose each one.
Object-oriented programming is above all an idea, and because of this, there's always been a lot of debate over what it means to be a pure object-oriented language and what languages best meet that definition? One of the basic questions might be, does the language just support the creation of objects or does it take it one step further and demand that everything must be an object? Now, words like polymorphism, encapsulation, inheritance, and abstraction gets thrown around a lot, but this course is not the place to get into those discussions.
What it is worth knowing is what the current state of things is. Earlier in the course, we talked about this loose list of currently popular programming languages. Now, object-oriented programming has been such a successful idea that all the languages on this list except one use it. C is not an object-oriented language as it predates the time of object-oriented programming. But several languages on here can be thought of as really object-oriented versions of C. C++ for example had the original name of C with classes.
