Often, designers need to convey simple data without the overhead of a relational database such as MySQL. This course introduces web technologies that make it easy for a designer or developer to store, retrieve, and display data online.

First, discover how data is collected via standard and advanced HTML5 forms. Then look at a client-friendly approach to storing that data using simple CSV files. Next, Joseph shows how to store, manage, and style data with the three big players: the granddaddy of static data, XML; the popular JavaScript-based JSON; and the recursively named YAML (YAML Ain't Markup Language), frequently used in Ruby-based projects. Plus, take a close look at basic HTML5 data options, including local storage and the flexible data attribute.

Topics include:
  • Interacting with data through HTML forms
  • Storing data as comma-separated values
  • Saving, retrieving, and displaying data as XML
  • Setting up and updating JSON data
  • Creating a YAML data file
  • Using HTML5 data storage solutions

Welcome

- [Voiceover] Hi, Joe Lowery here, happy to welcome you to Working with Data on the Web. Often, designers need to convey simple data without the overhead of a relational database, such as MySQL. We'll first explore how the web collects data, through forms, with an emphasis on HTML5 innovations. Then, we'll work our way through robust technologies, like XML, JSON, and YAML, as well as showing some new tricks for handling good, old CSV files.

Finally, we'll take a close look at basic HTML5 data options, including local storage and the flexible data attribute. There's a ton of possibilities for handling data directly, and straightforwardly. So, let's get started with Working with Data on the Web.
