This hands-on workshop will introduce basic techniques for web-scraping using popular Python libraries. This is an intermediate-level, and somewhat challenging, workshop appropriate for those who have been using Python for at least a few months. You should be familar with all of the material in the Python Introduction workshop and have used these skills in your own projects to the point where you are comfortable with them.
PLEASE NOTE: This workshop is being delivered in a FLIPPED CLASSROOM format.
