Working with JSON Data from Python

Learn about serializing Python objects to JSON, and its reverse, deserializing JSON to Python objects.

GK# 5195

Course Overview


JavaScript Object Notation (JSON) is an open-standard format that uses human-readable text to transmit data objects consisting of key-value pairs (KVPs). It's the most common data format used for asynchronous browser/server communication (AJAJ), largely replacing XML which is used by AJAX. 

This course will carefully examine serializing Python objects to JSON, and its reverse, deserializing JSON to Python objects. The default JSON encoder is sufficient to serialize some Python objects; we will explain in depth when a custom encoder is needed and how to build one. Likewise, the course will also cover building a custom decoder.
