What is Object Oriented Programming Language(OOP)?
Object oriented programming languages are based on objects. But what is object? You already know about real life objects for example chair, pen, cat, dog and book. Real life objects have state and behavior. For example states of pen are its color and size.Behavior of pen is “to write”. Similarly software programming objects also have states and behavior. The state of programming objects are its variables and behavior is its functions or methods.

Here is the list of top 5 object oriented programming languages you must learn. Here I have included the lists of most demanding OOP languages.
Java is perhaps the most popular object oriented programming languages. Java was initiated by James Gosling in 1991 and released in 1995 by Sun Micros System. Java is truly object oriented. In Java every thing is object. It is platform independent language. Java is not compiled on specific machine rather it is compiled on bytecode. Bytcode is then interpreted by Java Virtual Machine (JVM) wherever it runs regardless of platforms.
Python is an interpreted language. Python is created by Guido van Rossum and released in 1991. Python interpreters allow Python code to run on a wide variety of systems.
C++ is one of the most powerful programming language. It was developed by Bjarne Stroustrup in 1983. C++ is an extension of C programming language. The basic purpose of C++ was to introduce object oriented programming language to C.
PHP is widely used scripting language for web development. PHP also supports object oriented programming language. PHP is an open source language specially suited for web development. It is created by Rasmus Lerdorf in 1994. PHP code can be embedded into HTML. Object oriented programming (OOP) was added in PHP 3. later it improved in PHP 4 . PHP 5 included new features which includes improved support for object oriented programming.
