I’m talking to @stellamberV and she said you’ve been researching packages for scraping and parsing. This is the kind of thing that I can help with, and I want to get you folks productive! A good general guide is: http://docs.python-guide.org/en/latest/
For simple scraping, requests is a good way to go: http://docs.python-requests.org/en/master/
For parsing, I think @manjiangjie was saying he used beautifulsoup which is a good choice. The other would be lxml. But stick with whichever is more familiar!

I have some experience with beautiful soup. It's really easy to work with

@sunnya97 you can discuss with us about the technical things after Friday's meeting and we can start parsing later. You will come that day right?
