    What is JSON?

    JSON (JavaScript Object Notation) is a way to pack an object into a string, so that it can be transferred somewhere & later unpacked into an object. It is textual, language-independent, data exchange format similar to CSV, XML, YAML,etc.

    JSON got its origin based on how Javascript object works. However it is not limited to just Javascript. It is used in other languages as well.

    The process of converting an object into a string (byte format) is called serialisation/marshalling.

    The process of converting a string into object or extracting data structure from a series of bytes is called deserialisation/unmarshalling.

    Why do we need a data exchange format?

    Objects in different programming languages are represented/strucutred differently. What is valid in Javascript might not be recognisable in C++/Java because they represent objects differently. A data exchange format like JSON enables structured information transfer between programming languages.

    Invalid

    01, [, },'', [1,],['1','2', '3'],"abc,"abc\","abc\u012",{'a':'b'}, {a:8}
