This talk will presents some results of how practitioners talk about programming with particular emphasis on object-oriented programming. It looks ate some critical aspects that differentiate different understandings of the nature of a program and of design characteristics of programs. It will also present some future directions for this type of research and raise questions about the implications for teaching novice programmers.
