Class-oriented programming, as supported by Java, C++ and C#, helps you develop classes for your customer. Object-oriented programming, on the other hand, lets you focus on networks of cooperating objects that work together to create business value. This talk describes the trygve open-source programming language and its support for real object-oriented programming the way it was envisioned by those who shaped it in its early days. Learn about trygve and maybe even join the community to help evolve it. And if you’re a working developer, some of the ideas carry over into C# and C++.
