Object-oriented Programming

Object-oriented programming, or OOP, is a programming style focused on objects rather than long lists of functions. Objects tend to contain all the functions within them. Many objects can be reused which means that programmers don't have to recreate code for problems that have already been solved. OOP is highly structured and avoids repetition and bugs.

What Small and Midsize Businesses Need to Know About Object-oriented Programming

Developers for business may prefer OOP for various reasons. It can be faster and simpler to execute. Plus, many popular business platforms, tools, and systems use OOP. This helps small businesses that need to build their own apps get started quickly, even if they only have a small IT team or specialists without deep coding experience.
