February 8, 2017 @ 12:00 pm - 1:30 pm PST

Brown Bag on Web Scraping Essentials: Bring Your Own Lunch + Website

Presenter: Mike Tzen

Abstract: In this bring your own lunch brown bag, we’ll discuss the essentials of getting data through web scraping. Most importantly, we’ll jump straight into ‘CSS Selectors’ as it’s the key ingredient in telling computers how to surf the web like a human. Along with lunch, feel free to bring an example website that we can explore with. Hopefully, with the new knowledge and a full stomach you would be able to get started with this versatile way to obtain data from the web. This is a handy skill to have, given recent events.
