Service-Oriented Programming is built on top of Object-Oriented Programming principles, but SOP is not OOP. Service-Oriented Programming is the root of Internet of Things, MicroServices, and other Service-Oriented Architectures. SOP, and its designs, have long been considered Anti-Patterns to OOP. Luckily for us, Service-Oriented Programming has its own principles, and doesn't have to follow the principles of Object-Oriented Programming. Learn the roots of SOP, Master its basics, and see SOP through the eyes of a large systems practitioner.
