JSON is a bit like XML but simpler and shorter to write. The syntax usedis similar to that used by JavaScript .Knowing some JavaScript will be useful hence I have included some lectures likeJavaScript variables, operators and functions. JSON can be parsed orinterpreted using JavaScript functions so having a basic understanding of JavaScriptfunctions will help when the functions are used to translate JSON.
