Creating Data - Web Scraping Workshop

 

Extract valuable data from blog posts, news sites, social networks, wikipedia, and more! Web scraping is a powerful tool for pulling data that’s locked away in web content.

Throughout the workshop, you’ll learn how to use web scraping to automatically extract data from a variety of web sites. We’ll start slowly by extracting structured table data from Wikipedia, then move on to more advanced tasks like scraping social networks and doing scrapes that follow links to scrape data from multiple pages

Please bring a laptop computer for your own use during the workshop. Please make sure that you have the following software installed:

This workshop is part of the the Data Skills series. This workshop builds upon the material covered in the Intro to HTML and CSS for Web Scraping workshop. It is highly recommended to take these workshops together.
