Course Description

JSON stands for JavaScript Object Notation. JSON has become a widely accepted and popular format for data due to it’s platform neutral nature, lightweight format, and it’s ability to convert directly to native JavaScript Objects. JSON is being used everywhere from Web APIs, to noSQL databases, to server side language libraries and client side frameworks.

This course will give you a low level understanding of JSON syntax, data types, and formatting, followed by a high level introduction into the many applications of JSON out in the world today. This course will also address security concerns with JSON, so you can use JSON in your own applications with confidence.

Putting JSON in your tool-belt is the first step. This course will give you not just an understanding of JSON syntax, but and understanding the role JSON is currently playing in the web today.

In Web Development there are a lot of buzzwords buzzing like:

  • JSON Web APIs
  • Single Page Applications
  • Client Side Model-View-Controller (or MVC)
  • NoSQL Databases

This course seeks to inspire you in how you can use the new JSON in your toolbelt through exposing you to the role JSON plays in these technologies. Join me, Marie Taylor, and learn JSON today.

    • Mr. Johnny STANESCU

    One of the best trainings

    Awesome quality, great english, nice content. TBH, is following by the book WYSIWYG and, comparing with its price, actually you can't ask for more.

    • Kenneth Sizer

    A little slow out of the gate, but totally worth the cost

    Perhaps I'd had too much caffeine, but the first few lectures seems to drag for me. Then, I discovered the "1.5x speed" button and -- thanks to the instructor's excellent enunciation -- I was rolling! Not to over sell it, but Lecture 12 ( using XMLHttpRequest and jQuery) is probably worth the cost of the entire course. Crisp, clear, and lots of very useful info. Spot on.

    • Gregg Hudis

    Great Course

    I needed a JSON quick overview to get started on a project at work and this was perfect.

    • Ken Sturgeon

    Enjoyable, straightforward and illuminating.

    This was an enjoyable course that really shed light, not only on JSON syntax, but on how other technologies consume it. I have lived in a world of relational databases for many years and I'm trying to learn more about NoSQL technologies. This course helped me understand how document stores are used and I appreciate the straightforward explanations that Marie provides.
