Summary

Instruction

JSON stands for JavaScript Object Notation. As you've might guessed, it is based on a subset of the JavaScript programing language.

JSON is a text-based format that humans can read quite easily. Its structure is familiar to C-family programmers, those who code in C, C++, C#, Java, JavaScript, Perl, Python, etc. The language-independent JSON format is widely used as a data-interchange format. Because of this, JSON is used by many RESTful APIs (APIs that work over HTTP requests).

JSON files are often used as data inputs and outputs.
