    The LACUNY Emerging Technologies Committee is hosting an introductory workshop on web scraping using Python. Join us from 3-5pm on Thursday, October 22nd at the Graduate Center, room C196.05, where Susan Steinman will lead us through a hands-on demo of a web scraping project. Here’s a description of what will be covered:

    Intro to web scraping in Python

    Learn how to get information from the internet into your programs for data visualization, app development and more!

    Through this (very simple!) hands-on seminar, you’ll learn:
    · What web scraping is and why you might want to use it
    · How to access web pages with Python
    · How to parse web content

    plus:
    · HTML basics
    · Importing libraries
    · Using the REPL to explore a code base

    Please bring a laptop if you can, since this will be a hands-on session. Also, if you’re bringing a Windows laptop, please arrive a bit early so that we can hopefully get you set up with a Python environment.

    Please RSVP to: http://bit.ly/1KU5Rfe

    Hope to see you there!
    Your Emerging Technologies Committee co-chairs,
    Julia Pollack and Mark Eaton
