Object Oriented Programming
OOPS stands for Object Oriented Programming. it is is a programming paradigm that uses "objects" and their interactions to design applications and computer programs. Programming techniques may include features such as information hiding, data abstraction, encapsulation, modularity, polymorphism, and inheritance. Many modern programming languages now support OOP.

In Object Oriented Programming both the data type of a data structure and the types of operations (functions) that can be applied to the data structure are defined . In this way, the data structure becomes an object that includes both data and functions. In addition, programmers can create relationships between one object and another
One of the principal advantages of object-oriented programming techniques over procedural programming techniques is that they enable programmers to create modules that do not need to be changed when a new type of object is added. A programmer can simply create a new object that inherits many of its features from existing objects. This makes object-oriented programs easier to modify.
Inheritance, Abstraction, Polymorphism, Event Handling and Encapsulation are thesignificant concepts within object-oriented programming languages and are explained in this online tutorial describing the functionality of each concept in detail.
