Class's and Objects are the Same Thing

In OOP (Object Oriented Programming) Languages, the term “Class”, “instance” and “Object” are essentially the same thing. This can be confusing when first learning OOP as the terms are interchangeably used.

From a low-level perspective, a class is a blueprint while an object is an in-memory instance (see how easy it is to use these terms!)

From an everyday coding perspective, think as them all as the same thing.
