If Object-Oriented Programming Were Announced Today

Graham Lee has a post titled If Object-Oriented Programming were announced today:

Here’s an idea: the current backlash against OOP is actually because people aren’t doing OOP, they’re doing whatever they were doing before OOP. But they’re calling it OOP, because the people who were promoting OOP wanted them to believe that they were already doing OOP.

Basically, Graham argues that a lot of the “newer” paradigms are just OOP by a different name, and that none of us were really doing pure OOP to begin with. You should also check out his talk at UlKonf 2015Object Oriented Programming in Objective-C — where he talks about a lot of the same things in greater detail.
