This is clickbait. It's just another fad-push for people who don't read books and can't do object-oriented programming.

In 1995 I took a contract with a company doing a telephony project at Intel. The project was way over my head and I was hoping to get a few paychecks and pay some bills before my impostership was discovered.

Instead I broke my project down into objects with clear interfaces and responsibilities and next thing I knew, after six weeks of coding and zero testing, and once I had finished the last component EVERYTHING WORKED.

Management was so impressed they excused me from most meetings so I could work, which at Intel is like being crowned Pope. The Intel people were red-eyed furious. They had lost control over my time.

I was able to do this by applying OOP. Using functional programming I would have been overwhelmed with detail.

And what's your objection to OOP? I's hard to unit test. UNIT TESTING?!? That's a waste of time and produces little of value, part of that idiotic TDD fad that people use because they aren't allowed o concentrate so they produce buggy code.

You don't know what you're talking about.
