A paradigm is a pattern of something or one that serves as a pattern or model. Or you can say its a way of doing something like a programming but not a concrete thing like a language! Basically, there are a lot of programming languages in the market but all of them need to follow some strategy when they are implemented and that strategy is a paradigm.


As the name itself is saying — “a style of programming based on a particular model of computation”. This does not refer to any specific language, but rather it refers to the “way” you program.


Again as the name says — “ which supports more then one paradigm” :)

Major types of programming paradigm:

There are lots of programming paradigm to fulfil the demand of the problem.

1.b- Object-Oriented Programming Paradigm
