Interfaces are supported by multiple languages, but it's important to consider whether the language you're using supports multiple inheritance. Depending on the features you need for programming, different languages will offer different benefits. Learn more about reviewing feature support across different object-oriented languages in this online video.

In this class, we have been focused on general object-oriented design…techniques, patterns, and practices.…It is worth talking a little but more about language differences.…Now as far as I was able, I made this course as generic as possible, and we've…explored a few examples in different languages--a few more using Java as it's a…common well-known language with typical implementation of these concepts.…But when you're comparing languages, what you will you find as one of the…biggest differences is does the language support multiple inheritance.…C++ does, Ruby does using a feature called Mixins, but most languages on this…list allow and enforce only single class inheritance.…
Let Simon Allardice introduce you to the terms—words like abstraction, inheritance, polymorphism, subclass—and guide you through defining your requirements and identifying use cases for your program. The course also covers creating conceptual models of your program with design patterns, class and sequence diagrams, and unified modeling language (UML) tools, and then shows how to convert the diagrams into code.
