A variable is like a box, you can put things into it. What kind of thing you put into the variable is up to you.

A list is an example of something you might put into that box, as are integer, string, custom object, set, and so on.

Lately, I've been migrating to the definitions:

  • A variable is a label that points to an object. That is, the right-side of an assignment creates the object, the left-side of the assignment is a label that points to that object.
  • A list is a iterable collections of labels where each label points to an object.
