Python 101 intro workshop & web scraping with python (Cantonese)

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:

      It is better if you have basic knowledge of programming and Linux command line operation.
