When a web browser communicates with a server, the data can only be text. The JSON file is text only, and it can easily be sent to and from a server. JSON is a popular data exchange format between applications. For example, the Facebook API, Twitter API, and Google Calendar use the JSON format. Knowledge of JSON is useful when you want to write an application that uses this API (e.g. processes data from Facebook, Twitter, etc.)
You can use JSON as a data format with any programming language. In this online course, you'll learn how it can be used with Python. In this course, you'll establish the mindset you need to take your Python skills to the next level. At the end of the course, you'll get the chance to review your knowledge by challenging yourself with a quiz.
