Object Oriented Programming - for Dummies

I have been writing ProToolkit on and off for 20 years using C.    I have a 1991 programming education, so Object oriented programming looks rather foreign to me.    Can anyone recommend a training class on Object oriented program that would prepare me for writing  ProToolKit OTK?      Is there a point where we will be forced to convert all proToolkit  to OTK? 

 

Thanks!

You can find many courses in https://www.udemy.com/

OTK needs a run-time license and it costly for the end-users compared to Protoolkit. Most of the functionality available in otk is exists in Protoolkit already. But no idea about PTC roadmap on how long Protoolkit is supported or is otk will replace Protoolkit.   

Only The Object Toolkit Java requires run-time license.

Object Toolkit C++ license works as Creo Toolkit (protoolkit) - with a license you can unlock the dll file.

you may get a bit more informative answers if you would ask you question at ptcuser.org :

That area is only accessible to TC members and is not intended to replace the PTC Community for these kinds of discussions.

the only place to get any info regarding OTK and Pro/Toolkit roadmap is PTC. Historically TC's posted question/discussion got somewhat better (if any) responses from PTC product managers. The protected status of TC discussion boards may have to do something with that or maybe it was just a coincidence.

You will find a clear and understandable answer in the post 'Future of TOOLKIT' from Mark.

 

I think, there will never be a reason to rewrite applications in the Object Toolkit, due to forced it PTC. Only sometimes will you use some new function from OTK in your legacy "ProToolkit" project, because function will not be added to C TOOLKIT (marginal problem). Both APIs can be part of one project.
The solution of old projects in a modern C ++ compiler/standard and the use of VS2019 will bring you much more worries, than some missing functions in C TK.

I think that's as good of answer as we're going to get on the future of Toolkit.  For now..
