- Be able to program using Python
- Understand how web development works
This video series will walk through building a simple blogging analytics dashboard in Python.
Here is a synopsis of each video:
Talks about the project and data pipeline
Talks about web scraping basics
Shows how to scrape one blog article
Shows how to scrape all the blog articles in one category
Shows how to scrape all the blog articles in all the categories
