An object is a programming abstraction that groups data with the code that operates on it. It's a "creature" that encapsulates data and its relevant functions. The data is stored in the object's properties. Its functions are called methods. An object named course, for example, could have the following properties:

PropertyExample Content
nameAdvanced JavaScript Programming
time5 pm - 8 pm
studentsName, Age, Address, Telephone

Here are the object's methods:

MethodProcessed Data
initialize()Basic information (name, reference, day, etc.)
addStudent()New student's basic information
deleteStudent()Current student's information
