Hello! I am a computer science student and I have this question. Which approach of programming is more common in industry today, structured programming approach or object oriented approach? I mean both are different ways of writing a code and as a student I had to learn both the ways and we were also told about the advantages of objected oriented approach, its history etc. But I have heard that even today, a lot of applications are developed using structured approach, why is that so?
Usage of structured programming and object oriented programming
Structured programming language is very convenient for small programs or softwares. On the other hand object oriented programming language is popularly used for large program or softwares. But, these two languages have very small difference in performance. In some case, programs/ softwares written in object oriented programming languages are slower than programs/ softwares written in structured programming languages. Source code written in object oriented programming languages for large softwares is very easy to maintain, this is the main cause of it’s popularity. You can learn more detail from here:
