Serialization is the process of converting a logical and in-memory object to a string data-type. This has many advantages such as: Storing this data in a database and later retrieving it, exposing an API that serves this data for consumers to use, and many more. JSON is the JavaScript Object Notation and it's used to represent JavaScript objects in string format. There are a ton of benefits to using this format in JavaScript-rich, interactive programs.
