The course is suitable for software developers who wish to gain a practical understanding of OO programming.


This course will take delegates through the following objectives:

  • Explain the terminology of object-orientation
  • Understand the principles and practices on which object-oriented development is based
  • Become familiar with modern trends in OO development, such as component-based development, design patterns, refactoring and object modelling
  • Experience object-oriented programming first hand.
