Before "Random Quote Machine"

Hi guys,
so according to this post,

I’m supposed to know JSON and AJAX beforehand.
I guess that in the old curriculum, those parts are covered before the project. Not like right now, those JSON and AJAX are in data visualization, which is a certificate ahead.

So, I guess I should begin with data visualization and then come back to this challenge, right? Or does FCC expect something different?

Thank you for reading,

You don’t have to know how to handle APIs or handle JSON and AJAX to make the project. I made an array in my case, you can check it here. It would make no sense to ask you to do something they haven’t teach you (though I have seen people learn exclusively for this project lol).

Even though it is possible to solve this problem creating an array, most of the time you’re going to be receiving data on a JSON format so I would say is a good idea to learn it in order to solve this problem, along with AJAX and asynchronous requests. Is not mandatory, but is a good way to understand how things happen on a real scenario.
