You must be logged in to purchase this item.


Friday, March 3, 2:15 - 5:45 p.m. 

Cost: $40

Instructors: Iris Lee, Los Angeles Times; Aadit Tambe, The Washington Post


Iris Lee and Aadit Tambe will guide you through a three-hour, hands-on introduction to free, automated web scraping with GitHub’s powerful Actions framework.

You will learn how to:

  • Create a GitHub repository to store your code online
  • Write just enough Python to scrape a simple data file
  • Configure GitHub Actions to schedule the scrape
  • Log the results to the repository and make it publicly accessible
  • Send a Slack notification when new data is logged

Preregistration is required and seating is limited. You must bring your own laptop (no tablets) to participate in this class, and prior to the class you should sign up for a free GitHub account prior to the class. If you have a good attitude and know how to take a few code crashes in stride, you are qualified. We want you.

Preregistration is required and seating is limited.
