- Many modern languages, including Java, C#…and Python, implement a programming model…called object-oriented programming,…which is intended to give programmers a way to think…about the various elements in their program,…like objects in the real world.…Rather than thinking about a program as a sequence…of logic in actions,…in an object-oriented programming language,…we create virtual objects as the pieces of our program…and then interact with and use those objects…to accomplish a task.…Object-oriented languages give us a way…to structure and organize our code,…that makes it easier to design and maintain…large-scale applications.…
I'll discuss many of the benefits of…object-oriented programming throughout this chapter…but first, let's start by asking the basic question,…what is an object?…Well, to understand what an object means,…in terms of programming,…start by thinking about what makes something an object…in the real world.…Now, imagine for a minute that this closet space…represents my program and all of the various items…
