Are you an engineer who's tired of having to depend on different types of libraries to manipulate and transform JSON, XML, or SQL data types? And only then realize the complexity of making these heterogeneous libraries work together? You're not alone as this is the daily struggle of every integration developer.
With Ballerina, things are not going to be same again! Ballerina has native support for handling these message formats and datatypes. Having JSON, XML and Datatable burnt into Ballerina as native types allows developers to add, remove, or even transform between these datatypes seamlessly. Even better, Ballerina's ability handle these types in a unified manner not only cuts down developers' time and effort, but also makes it fun to work with these data formats and types. This session will showcase and explain each functionality in detail.
