... on object oriented programming (seen on Newsforge)

"Python is easy to learn. But new users and occasional programmers don't think in object-oriented terms. One must be taught to think this way. My friend, a high school computer science teacher, tells me that new users state their programming problem and then ponder the steps to resolve it. They don't identify the objects of a problem space and then consider the methods they need. At the end of the semester, a few advanced students love object-oriented programming and are off and coding Java. The vast majority would have been better served by having learned to script procedural solutions for common programming problems."
