Description

Get started with your journey to 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 and business intelligence specialists will use scraping to build datasets and crunch numbers. 

No prior knowledge of web scraping needed, attend to know the basics of web scraping. In this webinar, we use Python AutoScraper library, and an interactive Jupyter notebook to show you the basics of web scraping in a step-by-step tutorial and how can you, as a developer, leverage it.
