Introduction to JSON and Structured Data - Library Juice Academy Course

  • 1.  Introduction to JSON and Structured Data - Library Juice Academy Course

    Posted Jan 19, 2022 11:31 AM

    Hi all,

    Here is an upcoming course through Library Juice Academy.

    Introduction to JSON and Structured Data

    Dates: February 7 - March 6
    Instructor: Robert Chavez
    Credits: 1.5 CEUs or 15 PDHs
    Price: $200.00

    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.
