Web scraping (also known as scraping, scrapeing, harvesting and data extraction), is both the art & craft of extracting data from websites. Data obtained from web-scraping is used for price comparison, business lead generation, and competitive analysis.
I created this course because I want to improve the quality of web-scraping information available. Most courses assume you know a lot about scraping already, but that's mostly not the case - this course doesn't try to teach you everything, the objective is to give you a solid foundation in the basics so you can start to master the art and craft of web scraping.
It doesn't matter if you use Python, Java, C# or any other language for webscraping, this short course is light on code, and tries to use imagery and animation whenever possible to get the message across. There are various frameworks that are used to assist in web scraping depending on the programming language you use. Some of these scraping libraries these include Scrapy, Beautiful Soup and others in the Python web scraping world, and JSoup and HtmlUnit for Java for example.
If you want to learn web scraping with python or any other language, don't take *any other course* until you take this free one - you'll be glad you did .. trust me, when you do take your next web-scraping course, you'll be in a far stronger position to get the most form it :)
