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.
