JSON Schema is a powerful tool for validating deep, complex data structures and is a godsend for those of you who miss the most comprehensive solutions some of the more mature languages had to this problem.

In this talk you'll discover that with JSON Schema, and a good validator library, you can do so much more. Automatic form generation, recursive data transformation, data generation and basically any other operations you would like to do over a deeply nested data structure. You can even do business process automation with schemas.

In the talk Jason will kick off with an introduction into some of the concepts involved before exploring 2-3 unexpected but useful examples of JSON Schema use.
