Imagine a class as some group of information for describing an

object in real life, forget about programming. A class is something

that does not yet exists. Its something only on paper. A design. A

set of information for giving later a real instance to its real

content. Class-oriented programming gives to the programmer (and

the program itself) the extreme ability to be easy serviced and

easy upgraded. Its more likely the easiest way to understand better

what the code does, even if that code is very big in size.

a class can be analogous with any real life object like "Table".

now if we need to define its properties like length, with , height

etc, and calculations like volume, surface area etc. like that

while programming if something has few particular properties and

methods to be performed upon, those can be consolidated in a class.

i.e in a class we can consolidate the properties and methods of

something, which can be instantiated later on
