Introduction to JSON and Structured Data

Instructor: Robert Chavez
Dates: November 4th through 29th, 2019
Credits: 1.5 CEUs or 15 PDHs
Price: $175

JSON is a semi-structured data format for encoding data and is a popular
language for data sharing and interchange - as such it is considered a good
alternative to XML. This materials in this course will cover all the core
JSON syntax and data structures as well as:

- structured data as a concept
- core data structuring approaches
- the differences between XML and JSON
- when to use XML, when to use JSON

JSON itself is the language of JSON Schema and JSON-LD. We will also study
core JSON Schema, a language that allows annotation and validation of JSON
documents, and have an introduction to JSON-LD. JSON-LD is covered in
greater depth in a follow-up course, JSON-LD Fundamentals. Both courses are
follow-ups to our Certificate in XML and RDF-Based Systems.
