Web Scraping!

20131010-171218.jpg

For the next several days I’ll be learning the processes behind web scraping using Python at the University of Missouri’s School of Journalism.

The class is sponsored by Investigative Reporters and Editors.

The course will be taught using Python, but the concepts will be applicable to any programming language. We’ll cover topics like how to write and run code, how computer programs are structured and how data journalists use these tools to produce award-winning journalism in real-world newsrooms.

I’ll be posting all of the class’ materials within this post; You can find my notes, here.

All of the code, and the tip sheets can be found, here
