JSON Juggling

JSON has become software’s lingua franca, the most common way for programs to serialize data for sharing between programs, between languages, and between machines. We’ll try out some “small sharp tools” that help you handle JSON efficiently: jq and gron.

As a data source, we’ll do a little civic hacking on FACE Ohio, the state’s campaign finance data open data tool.

And, as always, bring your miscellaneous questions, ideas, and projects to talk about!

Wed, April 11 in the Dayton Chess Club.
