Web Scraping is a method for extracting textual characters from websites so that they could be analyzed. Web scraping is sort of content mining, which means that you collect useful information from websites, including quotes, prices, news company info, etc.


This method for gathering data is direct, either through looking at websites' html code or visual abstraction techniques using Python programming language. 


We start workshop by exploring different methods to gather data from Web. We go through the whole process of gathering, storing and analyzing data. For our examples we use real-life financial quotes and Annual reports 10-K. During the course we learn how to use numerous Python libraries - Urllib, Requests, Wget, BeautifulSoup 4.0, SSL, PDFminer3k, Twitter and others.

Always enjoy taking a class with Art. He is knowledgeable and on top of his game. His class is quick paced but easy to follow... is patient with questions.

Reviewed by Will on 2/23/2019
Great class. Class size was small (4 people) so you get a lot of individual attention and Art made sure everyone was on the same page before moving through the material. Would recommend it for sure!
Python for Web Scraping
Reviewed by Anonymous on 2/8/2019
Excellent school and facility, extremely interesting course, good small class size. Art is very thorough, helpful and able to break down content in a way it is easily digestible by those in attendance. My only feedback might be to conduct a webinar, e-learning or similar ahead of time to prep all learners and introduce them to the software used since there are differences between the operating systems (Mac, Windows, Linux) and their individual processes that need to be accounted for throughout the material. For example, on Linux/Mac you might install from the terminal whereas on Windows you're more likely to use a gui installer, accessing Python on Windows Command Prompt is different than using the terminal etc.

Reviewed by Kent S. on 7/27/2018
I think students should be asked to download the development tools required before the class so time isn't wasted installing stuff at the beginning of the class. Also instructor should include a 5 minute bathroom break in the middle. 3 hours is a long time to go with no break.
