March meetup - Scraper talk | Free drink if you bring a hack :)

Another meetup of the nascent HH meetup in Edinburgh. We are still on the prowl for more hacks to come along so this months theme is... web scrapers. 

Scrapers are a core tool for getting useful data off websites and often the starting point for data analysis, visualisation and mashups. 

Example scrapers as well as potential use-cases for the data will be presented, as well as a take-home sheet with more information. 

This week anyone who brings a hack along gets a complementary pint/drink on HH Edinburgh. 

Look forward to seeing you all there.

    Sorry I missed this meet as I've been exploring a few scrapers lately. Hope you have a meeting soon.

    Had some great conversations, and some very interesting ideas were raised. Looking forward to the next one!

We just grab a coffee and speak French. Some people have been coming every week for months... it creates a kind of warmth to the group.
