Course Object Oriented Programming

In the course Object Oriented Programming participants learn to program in an object oriented language such as Java, C# or Python. The participants can choose which language they want to use in the course. Object Orientation has proven to be a fertile programming paradigm. Most modern programming languages ​​today are object oriented and some older languages ​​such as C or PHP have added Object Orientation later.

    Intro Object Orientation

    The course starts with an overview of how Object Orientation evolved from other software development paradigms such as structured and procedural programming.

    Lowering of Semantic Gap

    An important advantage of Object Orientation is that domain concepts can be found directly in the software. It is explained how this lowering of the Semantic Gap makes the code more understandable and maintainable.

    Classes and Objects

    Subsequently concepts such as Classes and Objects, Fields and Methods, Getters and Setters, Constructors and Destructors are discussed. The concepts are the same for all Object Oriented languages, but in the course attention is also paid to differences at the detail level.


    Also treated is the concept of Encapsulation with which the internal data of classes is shielded from the outside world so that changes in the implementation can be made without modifications to the calling code.

    Inheritance and Polymorphism

    The concepts of Inheritance and Polymorphism are also part of the course program. By means of Inheritance derived classes can reuse the code from the base class and thus avoid duplication of code. Polymorphism makes it possible to give base class methods a different meaning in a derived class. The runtime environment can then automatically find these methods through dynamic binding.

    Design Patterns

    Finally attention is paid to Design Patterns in Object Oriented software, which provide standard template solutions for common problems.
