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.
The course starts with an overview of how Object Orientation evolved from other software development paradigms such as structured and procedural programming.
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.
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.
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.
Finally attention is paid to Design Patterns in Object Oriented software, which provide standard template solutions for common problems.
The course Object Oriented Programming is intended for anyone who wants to learn object oriented programming with classes and objects.
In order to participate in this course experience with programming in a procedural programming language is required.
The theory is discussed on the basis of presentation slides. The theory is explained further through demos. After discussing a module there is the possibility to practice. Course times are from 9.30 to 16.30.
After successful completion of the course the participants receive an official certificate Object Oriented Programming.

All our courses are classroom courses in which the students are guided through the material on the basis of an experienced trainer with in-depth material knowledge. Theory is always interspersed with exercises.
We also do custom classes and then adjust the course content to your wishes. On request we will also discuss your practical cases.
The course times are from 9.30 to 16.30. But we are flexible in this. Sometimes people have to bring children to the daycare and other times are more convenient for them. In good consultation we can then agree on different course times.
We take care of the computers on which the course can be held. The software required for the course has already been installed on these computers. You do not have to bring a laptop to participate in the course. If you prefer to work on your own laptop, you can take it with you if you wish. The required software is then installed at the start of the course.
Our courses are generally given with Open Source software such as Eclipse, IntelliJ, Tomcat, Pycharm, Anaconda and Netbeans. You will receive the digital course material to take home after the course.
The course includes lunch that we use in a restaurant within walking distance of the course room.
The courses are planned at various places in the country. A course takes place at a location if at least 3 people register for that location. If there are registrations for different locations, the course will take place at our main location, Houten which is just below Utrecht. A course at our main location also takes place with 2 registrations and regularly with 1 registration. And we also do courses at the customer’s location if they appreciate that.
At the end of each course, participants are requested to evaluate the course in terms of course content, course material, trainer and location. The evaluation form can be found at https://www.klantenvertellen.nl/reviews/1039545/spiraltrain?lang=en. The evaluations of previous participants and previous courses can also be found there.
