CodeTheCity: Web Scraping for Research using Python

This month we'll have an introduction to Web Scraping in Python from Ian Watt. Ian is a co-founder and trustee of Code The City who runs the Python User Group, the Data Meetups and more.

Then we'll have challenges to try some scraping for real, with the objective of writing scraper(s) to assist with a University of Aberdeen research project. All will be revealed in the evening.

Come early to network over pizza and drinks with the local Python community, and stay to work on a scraping challenge.

Bring your laptop. If you don’t already have Python set up, we can help you with that too. Coding in pairs or small groups (especially mixing beginner and more experiences coders) is strongly encouraged, though you can also code solo.
