View Thread: Which OOP books would you recommend to read, to better understand the concept?
  • eddwo

    I really liked Head First Design Patterns
    but I'm still struggling with this aspect myself.

    Its all very well teaching people the basics with silly examples like
     
    abstract class  Animal
    {
        MakeNoise();
     }

    class Dog : Animal
    {
         MakeNoise()
        { 
            bark();
         }
    }

    but that doesn't help when trying to decide things like how much responsibility each class should be given, how to create useful abstractions and reusable object models etc.

    Where do you go to learn the "real" stuff?
