: Foundations of Programming: Object-Oriented Design

Abstraction focuses on the essential properties of a thing instead of one specific example. If you think of a table, chances are that you give height and width to it, but don't consider exact dimensions. Likewise, in Object-Oriented Programming, when you make a class for bank accounts, you don't make a class specifically for Joe's or Alice's account. Instead, you make a class that covers the accounts of a broad set of people. Learn more about "What is abstraction?" in this video tutorial.
