Advanced VB.NET Programming – Serializing Objects with JSON

In this computer science programming lesson, you will what serialization is and why it is used. You’ll learn how to use VB.NET to serialize and desterilize an instance of a class via the JSON format. This can be used to save the state of an object to a file or a database, or to transmit object properties across a network. You will get the most out of this lesson if you’re an experience programmer and you are already familiar with object oriented programming, and coding classes in VB.NET.
