About This Course
Web scraping is the art of picking out data from a website by looking at the HTML code and identifying patterns that can be used to identify your data. This data can then be gathered and later used for your own analysis.
In this course we will go over the basic of web scraping, learning all about how we can extract data from websites, and all of this is guided along by a work example.
At the end of the course you should be able to go off on your own, and pick out most common websites, and be able to extract all the relevant data you may need just through using Python code.
