Jthan was drinking Stranahan’s Whiskey. Paden was drinking Glenfiddich 12. I was drinking water.

  • WAR OF THE DATA: XML? JSON? YAML?
    • The tweet I reference is here.
    • I mention at some point the standalone JSON parser/formatter/pretty-printer, jshon.
    • Key takeaways:
      • Use YAML if you like whitespace (and whitespace-defined) data
      • Use XML if you like more robust data structures/more flexibility
      • Use JSON if you want something easily parsed PURELY by machines- no human eyes will need to look at it
