Newb question: Could someone please explain Object-Oriented design in laymens?
Hello. I'm pretty new here and was just wondering if someone could please explain what Object-Oriented design is in very simple terms.
Also if you can, based on the title of this Master's Thesis of Computer Science, could you possibly explain what it is about. The title is: "Design of an Object-Oriented Interface for Message-Based Communication".
Thanks for any help

Are you coming to a message board for help with your master's thesis?
OOD is the implementation of object oriented programming.
By definition, objects are anything that take up memory, exceprt for functions (at least in c),
but object oriented programming for c++(and other languages) is based around user defined types, i.e. structs and classes, to program.
There's plenty of info on what oop is on this site, ood is just the design of oop. That's where we get the name object oriented design :D
