This chapter starts with a short, general description of data processing, communication, and interaction concepts; it also describes the relationship and importance of these concepts in the field of object-oriented programming (OOP). The chapter states that in OOP, the basic element concepts are represented as objects; the discussion then extends to the uses of object orientation as a methodology in informatics. The chapter then shifts to the exploration of parameters—fear, ambiguity, doubt, invisibility, and colonization—to analyze the concept in a detailed manner. The chapter, however, views OOP as a collection of interactions of objects, and also describes the role of human interaction and behavior.

Keywords:   data processing, object-oriented programming, informatics, human interaction, human behavior
