I'm curious as to what you meant by C++ changing your attitude towards objects.


Maybe he meant that C++ is multiparadigm programming language as opposed to Java which selling point was that it's true and only OOP?

"I actually never said that [C++ is an object oriented language]. It's always quoted, but I never did. I said that C++ supports object oriented programming and other techniques."
Bjarne Stroustrup, Artificial intelligence Podcast 42:20


What if it had to be big?


Do it in OOP and you will make it big.
"Once you reach a particular size, anything beyond that is no longer a reflection of functionality."

The Facebook iOS app has over 18000 classes. How do you compare it to Quake 3 that can render 30FPS of a 3D world on Pentium 3?

My guess is that the Quake team could have developed that fb app with 5 or no classes in 10x less time, the app being 10x less buggy and working at 10x speed vs the current iOS fb app.

At the same time the iOS FB team could hardly construct a PAC-MAN type game. (No disrespect to pac-man coderz)

It is always supposed by OOP supporters that the only pure moral way to write code is OOP and that elite developers do only OOP.
