Ever wanted to scrape data from the web but didn't know how? Here's your chance to learn. In this session you'll introduced to the concept of web scraping, and if you bring you own laptop, you'll learn how to use the scraper tool import.io. Import.io is an online tool, and you don't need to install anything. We will also discuss the ethical aspects of scraping.
