Introduction

A class groups different functions, methods, variables, and properties, which are called its members. A class encapsulates the members, which can be accessed by an instance of the class, called an object. Classes are extremely useful for the programmer, as they make the task convenient and fast, with characteristics such as modularity, re-usability, maintainability, and readability of the code.

Classes are the building blocks of object-oriented programming languages.
