About this video

JSON is a lightweight and popular way to exchange data. JSON resembles JavaScript object literal syntax only difference is that it's transferred as a string.

This course shows you what JSON data is and how it relates to JavaScript objects. You will see how JavaScript objects can be used to produce content on web pages using Fetch and XHR to connect to server data. Display output content to web pages using DOM manipulation. You will then set up a JSON server locally to practice JSON and AJAX. Use of tools like the postman to test API. You will send data to the local JSON database and simulate data CRUD. Finally, create a mini project that can edit and update data in the JSON.DB file locally.

By the end of the course, you will be to use JSON data within your JavaScript code and set up your own JSON server and practice AJAX and JSON locally.
