0:00 Hi everyone and welcome to JSON in Python. This is Julian Sequeira and I'm going to be walking you through some of the more interesting ways
0:10 of dealing with detailed JSON output. So JSON, if you're not familiar with it, stands for JavaScript Object Notation and it's pretty much just a way
0:21 of formatting data, okay. One of the most common ways of seeing JSON when you're working with Python is through contacting APIs.
0:31 Through working with numerous APIs out through the web. And one of the things about that is that you actually get
0:39 really complex dictionary nested situations going on. So the JSON output, if you haven't seen it before,
0:46 just looks like a little dictionaries and lists and if you get really deeply nested lists and dictionaries, it gets really complicated
0:56 to try and pull out that data, which is why JSON can sort of screw with you, pretty much. So, what we're going to do is we're going to go through that
1:03 in the next couple of days, have some fun with it and see what other cool APIs you can talk to by the end of it. So, let's move on.
