There is more information on the Internet than any individual can absorb in a lifetime. What is needed is not merely access to that information, but a scalable way to collect, organize, and analyse it. Webscraping is a technique used to automatically access and extract large amounts of information from a website.

In this workshop we will learn how to use Python to create a program to automatically retrieve and process information from a range of news sites and save this data in a structured format. This approach opens up a world of possibilities in data mining, data analysis, statistical analysis, and much more.
