NewsPolymorphism - A Re-evaluation Pin

staffTerrence Dorsey24-Feb-13 11:22 
To say that understanding polymorphism is critical to understanding how to effectively utilize an object-oriented language is a bit of an understatement. It’s not just a central concept, it’s the concept you need to understand in order to build anything of size and scope beyond the trivial. Yet, as important as it is I feel it is often quickly glossed over in most computer science curriculums. From my own experience, I took two courses that focused on OOP, undergraduate and graduate, but I don’t think I truly understood its importance until later.
John Teague begins a series of articles on polymorphism and OOP.
