Techopedia explains Object-Oriented
Object oriented is a computer science concept that has been widely implemented, specifically in programming languages and applications/software. The object-oriented technique is different from conventional programming, which focuses on functions/behaviors, while object-oriented works on the interactions of one or more objects.
An object-oriented based system is modeled and created through the use of objects, where each object's class instance has specific attributes and behaviors, and the relative methods or behaviors are called to manipulate or utilize such a system. The essence of object-oriented is that each of the created objects can be reused in the same and other programs and applications.
