Explain the concept of object serialization

Explain the concept of object serialization.

Hey Matthew

Object serialization is the process of converting an object’s state into a format that can be stored or transmitted and then reconstructed later. In simpler terms, it’s about turning complex data structures, like objects, into a format (often a byte stream or string) that’s easier to save to a file, send over a network, or store in a database. Later, this serialized format can be deserialized back into its original object form.
