JSON was a topic briefly mentioned in class but was given special emphasis based on popularity and adoption. By reading more into the applicable areas for development in using JSON, a couple of thoughts crossed my mind. First, developers are always looking for new ways to improve coding methods to be able to save time and maximize results. I definitely agree with this because writing code that is easy to edit too is always a plus. Especially if the project is a on-going one. Another thought is that there are always new approaches coming out that are geared towards mobile devices. Using JSON, developers are not just able to code data but also have the ability to send executable code. It is no wonder why developers choose JSON, it can allow them to build lightweight interactive applications.
