In Hong Kong, many information are available on internet but they are not published as open data, so we talk about the basic technique how to retrieve and extract data from raw HTML pages.
This 90-min workshop will quickly cover the basic of:
* Python 101 – Introduction to Python Programming
* Basic web scraping on python
This is a pre-event workshop of Open Data Day 2017 Hong Kong Hackathon, we hopes open data day participants can understand & learn the basic of python & web scraping.
