"for development convenience"

I wonder what the development convenience is when using protobuf instead of JSON. Could you elaborate?

That's what my whole comment was all about. Automatic generation of strongly-typed classes. Code completion. Compile-time type checking. Well-defined and strongly-typed API contract. Anything you want me to clarify?
