Using Node to crawl the web.

In November's NodeUpNorth we're joined by Mark Ibbotson who'll be showing us how Node.js can be used to crawl the web for various purposes.

Mark's talk will touch on:

• Web crawling introduction

• Types of crawler & practices

• Page readers

• Power of Node's networking capabilities

• Crawling search engines

• Look at modules like Cheerio & Request

Mark's enlightening talk promises to be a mix of talk and demonstration. So why not join us upstairs at the Brewery Tap, Leeds from 7pm?

As ever there will be food, drink and prizes and a fantastic community of like minded developers all keen to learn more about Node.js


Please note the group is intended for developers looking to expand their knowledge in a recruiter free zone only so whilst interest from recruitment consultants is nice we have a no recruiters policy.

    Hey guys,
    As well as the Firefox equivalent of PhantomJS (http://slimerjs.org) I mentioned, there's also an Internet Explorer equivalent at http://triflejs.org/

    Hope this helps, thanks.
