About the workshop

The internet is a trove of information. A lot of it is publicly available and thus suitable for use in research. Extracting that information and putting it in an organized format for analysis can however be extremely tedious.

Web scraping tools allow you to automate parts of that process and Python is a popular language for the task.

In this workshop, you will be guided through a simple example using the package Beautiful Soup.


Setup & Software Installation

This will be a hands-on workshop, so participants need to bring a laptop with Python installed on your device, along with the following libraries:
