This webinar explains how to document structured data, focusing on the two most popular structured data formats: JSON and XML. No programming experience is required, but technical writers with programming experience who want to know more about structured data will still find it useful.

JSON (JavaScript Object Notation) and XML (eXtensible Markup Language) are two ways to capture complex data. Unlike databases, where information is stored in tables with columns and rows, structured data allows for a tree-like structure with lists and key/value pairs. JSON and XML are often used in web APIs, and understanding how to document them is critical to documenting API styles such as REST and SOAP.

At the end of this webinar, you should have a better understanding of how JSON and XML work, how they are used in API documentation, and how to document them.
