NCDevCon Session Spotlight: Object-oriented programming for designers

Object-oriented programming (OOP) is a term that strikes fear in the heart of many non-programmers. However, it's not something to be afraid of. As a designer, you might never need to do programming, but you will almost certainly need to work with programmers, whether they are developing the back-end of your web site or programming the functionality of your mobile app. This session will not attempt to teach you programming; rather, you will learn the key terms and concepts you need to demystify OOP so that you can understand what your programmer is telling you.
