As a developer who’s spent years working with popular “scripting languages” I’ve developed a certain dislike of XML. Especially it’s formality. It’s all great when you’re an “enterprise” developer using “enterprise” tools to build “enterprise” solutions.
And then JSON came along. Oh my god. This is just so easy. It reads like Python. My browser can understand it with a single command.
And then some people came along and decided that JSON things need schemas. And I was all like… “urgh! get your dirty XML covered fingers off my JSON!”
