Web scraping is the process of gathering or “scraping” data from the world wide web. Instead of manually download pieces of data one at a time, you can create simple scripts that will collect thousands, millions, or even billions of data points from all over the internet, with a push of a button!
Evolve Security Academy Assistant Instructor, Joe Lothan will walk through basic topics, techniques, and tools to get you started using Python to scrape the web.
Attendees will learn how to use Python to work with web data, and why you would want to in the first place!
