The Nightmare.js before Christmas

Public group

This month we will be learning how to scrape data from the web using Nightmare.js (, a node.js-based browser automation library.

Make sure to bring a laptop, as we will be following a tutorial together as a group. No programming experience is required.

After the tutorial, we will be staying in Newspeak House for an early Christmas party to celebrate the end of the year. Since we have no sponsor this month, it's BYOB (Bring Your Own Beer or other beverage). There's an off-licence a few doors down.

Be sure to check out the collaborative hackpad ( and add links to cool data journalism-related stuff you've seen in the last month for the show & tell section!
