- About the Author
In OBJECT THINKING, esteemed object technologist David West contends that the mindset makes the programmer--not the tools and techniques. Delving into the history, philosophy, and even politics of object-oriented programming, West reveals how the best programmers rely on analysis and conceptualization--on thinking--rather than formal process and methods. Both provocative and pragmatic, this book gives form to what's primarily been an oral tradition among the field's revolutionary thinkers--and it illustrates specific object- behavior practices that you can adopt for true object design and superior results.
