Setup

To illustrate web scraping concepts this workshop uses the Chrome browser and the Data Miner plugin. We encourage you to install them to participate in the workshop activities:

  1. Google Chrome
  2. The Data Miner browser plugin for Chrome

Data Miner requires you to create a free account with their service by logging in through Google. If you are uncomfortable doing this you will still be able to follow along without Data Miner.

All data scraped through Data Miner is stored locally on your computer and never leaves your computer.
