Tasting Menu: Designing with Objects

Have you ever wondered: “how do I decide which classes/objects to create?” If so, this tasting menu on the object-oriented mindset is for you.

More than just a grab-bag, these videos have been carefully selected and ordered. Beginning with an overview of the core object-oriented idea, the course then steadily builds on a common theme: how to identify implicit concepts and then represent those concepts as objects.
