Easy Way to Generate Strongly-Typed C# Classes From JSON

In nearly all my previous projects I've worked on required some kind of manipulation with reading some form of JSON data.

To allow better integration into my application, I always create strongly-typed classes that mirror the structure of the incoming data feed. This in turn allows me to serialize the JSON and select specific properties I require. But sometimes, its quite difficult and confusing to the exact class structure right, especially when the JSON contains lots of fields of data.

When I find this is the case, I use json2csharp.com. By simply pasting the contents of your JSON, the site does all the hard work and creates all the strongly-typed classes for you.
