Beautiful Soup in Action - Web Scraping a Car Dealer Website
- basic understanding of Python programming
In this short course we will scrape data from a car dealer website, using Beautiful Soup.
Especially for people who work with data it is important to be able to create own datasets. Often we rely on datasets from someone else. This course should show all data enthusiasts how to scrape and store data in Excel Files.
The requirement for this course is basic knowledge of Python Programming. Since we will not cover very difficult Python topics you do not have to be a professional. The most important characteristic is that you are curious about Web Scraping and Data Mining. You should be ready to invest time in gaining the knowledge which is taught in this course.
After this course you will have the knowledge and the experience to scrape your own data and create your own dataset. With the help of the course resources you will always have documents you can refer to. If you have a question or if a concept just does not make sense to you, you can ask your questions anytime inside the Q&A - Forum. Either the instructor or other students will answer your question. Thanks to the community you will never have the feeling to learn alone by yourself.

Hi Everyone, my name is Alex and I know that a lot of Programming-Topics can be very confusing and overwhelming. My Goal is to share my knowledge in a very simple way. I'm focussing on Python, Selenium and the whole Web Scraping Process. Especially for my own Data Science and Machine Learning Projects, I need to understand the concepts behind Web Scraping and I want to share it with my students.
