JSON is a well-known, lightweight format for data exchange around the web. It’s a structured data format used in modern APIs and goes really well with web applications. But how do you work with these JSON files directly and perform operations on it? This is where JQ comes into play.

JQ is a flexible, lightweight, command-line processor that is like ‘sed’ for JSON data. JQ gets along well with UNIX pipes and offers rich functionality to interrogate, manipulate, and work with JSON files.

In this webinar, you will be introduced to JQ and you will learn how to work with basic filters, operators & functions, conditionals & comparisons, and how to define functions in JQ with apt demonstrations. Join our expert to know more about using JQ.
