What you'll learn

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.
