Introduction to Web Scraping
This online workshop is intended to orient complete beginners to the fundamentals of web scraping. By the end of this workshop participants will be able to articulate what web scraping is and when it may be a useful method to get information from the web; use one method to scrape content from the web, and do basic cleaning on scraped output.
To illustrate web scraping concepts we will use the Data Miner plugin, available for Chrome and Edge browsers. We encourage you to install a compatible browser and the Data Miner plugin before the workshop to participate fully: https://dataminer.io/
