Serialization basics with Serde

The de facto standard for all things serialization in Rust is the Serde framework. All the other recipes in this chapter are going to use it to some extent. In order to make you familiar with the Serde way of doing things, we are going to rewrite the last recipe using it. Later in the chapter, we will learn in detail how Serde works in order to implement idiomatic deserialization into a homemade format.
