Goodbye, OOP. I’ve been programming in Object Oriented languages for a decade. I was gung-ho to leverage the benefits of Inheritance, Encapsulation, and Polymorphism. The Three Pillars of the Paradigm. I was eager to gain the promise of Reuse and leverage the wisdom gained by those who came before me in this new and exciting landscape. I couldn’t contain my excitement at the thought of mapping my real-world objects into their Classes and expected the whole world to fall neatly into place.
