Description

Python is a beautiful language to code in. This is because it has got a great package ecosystem, much less noise (characters) than a typical program in a different language, and is super easy to use.

Python is used for a number of things - from data analysis to server programming. However, there's another interesting use-case of Python - Web Scraping. In this classroom, we will cover how to use Python for web scraping with a complete hands-on classroom guide as we proceed.

  • We will cover performing requests with requests package.
