Effective Object Orientation by James Duncan Davidson Object Oriented Programming is a Wonderland of sorts: The rabbit hole is very much deeper than it looks and it is easy to get lost in the details. Fortunately, the history of OOP, including the original Smalltalk language, provides many solutions to problems that continue to be encountered today. This presentation explores some important Object Oriented techniques, inspired by some of the lesser-known Object Oriented languages, in a way that can be applied to currently used systems.
