In this workshop, we cover how to extract data from the web with APIs using Python. APIs are often official services offered by companies and other entities, which allow you to directly query their servers in order to retrieve their data. Platforms like The New York Times, Twitter and Reddit offer APIs to retrieve data.
When APIs are not available, one can turn to web scraping. If you want to learn how to do web scraping in Python, attend the D-Lab Python Web Scraping Workshop.
Requirements: We will assume a basic knowledge of Python. If you’ve taken the D-Lab’s Python Intensive, that should be sufficient.
Prerequisites: D-Lab’s Python Fundamentals introductory series or equivalent knowledge.
