How do I serialize and deserialize JSON data in C#?

SON is a widely used data format for sharing data between applications. When working with .NET applications, it’s common to convert JSON data to .NET objects and vice versa. The process of converting .NET objects to JSON is called serialization, and the process of converting JSON to .NET objects is called deserialization. In this article, we’ll explore how to perform both serialization and deserialization of JSON data using C# through code examples.

What is JSON?

JSON stands for JavaScript Object Notation. It is a standard text-based format for representing structured data based on JavaScript object syntax1. It is commonly used for transmitting data in web applications (e.g., sending some data from the server to the client so it can be displayed on a web page or vice versa)1. JSON is an open standard file format and data interchange format that uses human-readable text to store and transmit data objects consisting of attribute-value pairs and arrays (or other serializable values).

Here’s an example of a JSON object that represents a person:
