Consuming Unknown JSON Input
Go in 5 Minutes, episode 19, as requested by @tmcarr!
This screencast teaches how to consume some unknown JSON. We don't know what it looks like ahead of time, and we have to handle anything that comes our way.
We'll be using only the standard library for this, although we could also use some wonderful

I've always done this type of parsing myself, but I've started using
go-simplejson and really
like it. It's well designed and very easy to use!
