Scrape a website with Python - Part 2

Due to high demand, we're holding a second session to learn scraping with Python! Thomas Levine will be leading us this time, but Jackie will be around, so we'll pick up where we left off.

We sadly can't provide food this time around, so please make sure you grab something on your way. We don't want people starving.

If you missed Part 1 but would like to come, please make sure you have Python, pip and git installed on your computer. You might also want to take a spin through Jackie's repo: https://github.com/jackiekazil/scraping-class.

We encourage you show up with a website you would like to scrape. If you can't think of any, we'll suggest one for you to practice on.

We'll gather at the Sunlight Foundation at 6 p.m. to get settled. The class will run from roughly 6:30 to 8:30. Bring your computer and a charger!

    +1 to being held up at work unexpectedly, but coming to try and catch the tail end anyway
