Difference Between Object and Associative Array


#1

I'm just curious what the difference between the two are, as in the first lesson of "Building an Address Book" it gives what appears to be an Object but calls it an associative array with properties and values.
In addition to asking if there is any difference between those, I also want to know if there is a difference between the properties and/or keys, as my own research into Associative Array's returned a description of them containing key:value pairs, which seems to be described in the activity as property:value pairs.
Thanks for any explanation that can be given!!!

i can give it a go, but since people wrote articles about it:

i might as well refer to them.

Awesome, thanks! This is much more detailed than what I had found thus far.
