Tutorial: It's Officially Legal so Let's Scrape the Web

Presented by:

Kimberly Fessel

Description

Web scraping empowers you to write Python programs that collect data from websites automatically, and recent legal rulings support your right to do so! This tutorial covers the breadth and depth of web scraping: from HTML basics through pipeline methods to compile entire datasets. Participants should have working knowledge of Python fundamentals but need not have prior experience scraping.
