Summary: Ed Wilson, Microsoft Scripting Guy, presents a video where he describes converting JSON data with Windows PowerShell.
Microsoft Scripting Guy, Ed Wilson, is here. Today I present a video where I talk about using the ConvertFrom-JSON cmdlet to parse information returned via Invoke-WebRequest. I am using Windows PowerShell 5.0 on Windows 10 to illustrate this technique. It is powerful and useful, and it makes for a better experience than having to parse XML.
Note For more information about this technique, see Playing with JSON and PowerShell.
Here is a link to the video from YouTube if you would like to download it or play it offline in a different video player (like stream it on your Xbox One like I do): Converting JSON objects with PowerShell by Ed Wilson.
I invite you to follow me on Twitter and Facebook. If you have any questions, send email to me at firstname.lastname@example.org, or post your questions on the Official Scripting Guys Forum. See you tomorrow. Until then, peace.
