Introduction to Scrapy
How to extract data from the internet the right way
A passionate of free software and Python, for the past 3.5 years I’ve been working professionally on web scraping. As part of my job I contribute to the development of Scrapy, the most popular web scraping framework out there, as well as many other related open source projects, including Splash and Dateparser.
In my spare time I’m involved mainly in projects related to the Galician language (translation, spellchecking), although I’m also an active member of the KDE, Chakra and 0 A.D. communities.
No video of the event yet, sorry!
Introduction to Scrapy, a framework for the automation of data extraction from the internet. I’ll give an overview of the features of the tool, explain in detail a simple example, introduce useful related technologies, and discuss some of the challenges that our internet bots face.
