API and web scraping workshops
Extracting Data from the Internet in Python
This workshop will cover how to extract data from the web using Python. We'll be covering both APIs and webscraping.
- How the web works
- Accessing databases via RESTful APIs
- HTML / CSS
- Manipulating a webpage with Google DevTools
- Webscraping with Beautiful Soup
This workshop will be using the Python programming language. See the software requirements here.
We will assume a basic knowledge of Python. If you've taken the D-Lab's Python Intensive, that should be sufficient.
Please note that materials are still in development, and will be changing.
