You have already learned that JavaScript variables are containers for data values(if not check out our previous article Introduction to JS Objects) . and that objects are the same as variables they can contain many values.

what’ll be doing ? 

Let’s consider a simple program that displays information about a teacher in a school  . 

First Start with creating the teacher object as follows 

var teacher=new Object()
  teacher.firstName= "John",
  teacher.lastName= "Doe"

or we can use another syntax  we can simply write 

var teacher= {
  firstName: "John",
  lastName: "Doe",
  age :27  

now if we want to display the information about Jane Doe we’ll be able to access it through the following syntax

exemple : teacher.firstName

alert(“The teacher’s name is “ + teacher.firstName + ' ' +teacher.lastName + “and his age is “+ teacher.age );

So now go inside the console of your navigator and create your object 

try a console.log(objectName) we can see all the properties of the object we just created

now run this and see what you’ll get !

now let’s get a teacher’s full name using the method fullName()

var teacher= {
  firstName: "John",
  lastName : "Doe",
  age   	: 27,
  fullName : function() {
    return this.firstName + " " + this.lastName;

In your alert this time call the method we just created as follows

name = teacher.fullName();

you’ll get this in your alert

congratulations ! you’ve done it ! you created your first object keep up with us to learn more about javascript . next time we’ll talk about data types !
