This is the starter course of a series to master web-scraping and Scrapy from basic skills to advanced concepts, from deep insights on the tools to the most practical real-life data science example utilizing web scraping on this platform, a depth and perspective unique to this course series that collectively have gathered more than 10000 students in months.
Two remaining questions:
First, who is this course aiming?
This course is for beginners. Not for beginners to programming, but beginners to Web Scraping. Persons who have seen it, thought about learning it, have limited time. Its about showing them how to start, and proceed and that web scraping is not earth science.
Second, what exactly is in this course?
In this course;
We will start with what is web scraping and why it is important.

I am Tarkan Aguner.
Engineer, Educator and a long time coder.
Everybody can learn coding. But teaching is a different skill.
As an Educator, I am keen on teaching one thing before diving into new languages and libraries: the programmer's mindset.
Because, you can be a perfect coder, but unless you have this mindset and the follow-on 'smart look' to real world problems, you will not be able to create.
Yes, my intent is to help you code to have a better life, not to 'pass one test' or solve someone else's data science problem in a corporate environment. But to solve the problems that you care and will have practical results to help you live better.
My courses will expose, and yes, teach you this mentality as we will be sailing in the world of Data Science, full of opportunities.
