In this course, Hands-on JavaScript Project: JSON, you'll have an opportunity to practice creating and accessing JSON data using JavaScript. First, you'll explore how to create JSON files within a JavaScript file. Next, you'll load those files on your local host using an XML HTTP request. Finally, you'll load them from the Weather Underground site using an API. By the end of this course, you'll have a working example of a hospitality page, where the data is dynamically loaded using AJAX, as well as a weather application where the current weather conditions are displayed for any zip code.

Hello, my name is Paul Cheney. Let me tell you about this great Hand On JSON course.

I believe that the best learning comes when you and I work together to build projects that you might see in the real world.

In this Pluralsight course, we will be learning about creating and accessing JSON data using JavaScript. Most of you will recognize this process as Asynchronous JavaScript and XML or AJAX.

We will create JSON files within a javascript file, load them from a file on our local host using an XML HTTP Request and finally load them from the weather underground site using an API.

You will complete this course with a working example of a hospitality page where the data is dynamically loaded using AJAX, as well as a weather application where the current weather conditions are displayed for any zip code.

Now you may not need either of these functioning responsive pages for your next client, but, you can use what you learn to build your next JSON and AJAX project.
