Learn how to explore the "insides" of websites and extract information from them. A lot of tech companies rely on Web scraping to fill their databases with publicly accessible information: price comparators, travel aggregators. Scraping is widely used in marketing for market research or customer feedback analysis.
Data scientists, business intelligence specialists, and even web developers will use scraping to build datasets and crunch numbers. Not to mention that Google's business was built on crawling and indexing the Web.
In this workshop, we use Python, the Beautiful Soup scraping library, and an interactive Jupyter notebook to show you the basics of web scraping in a step-by-step tutorial. You are free to take home the resulting code and adjust it for your purposes. Besides, you will also hear from Lindsay Han, Director of EF Recruitment and Employee Development, to discuss the growth mindset in professional development.
Some experience with Python will come handy, but is not necessary — basic programming concepts will be explained in an accessible hands-on manner. Please bring your laptop!
No pre-requisite, this is a workshop for beginners!
