Growing spiders to crawl the web

A session at Dutch PHP Conference 2013

Saturday 8th June, 2013

2:30pm to 3:15pm (AMT)

In most cases, the best place to get some data is right there in some website. The data owner might not have an API and is not really interested in providing you with data in any other form. So you are stuck trying to figure out how to scrape that data and makes sense of it…

This is where web scraping comes in - building small applications which understand the semantics of some websites and can figure out how to extract and categorize information, eventually with even some machine learning. This talk goes through the basics of web scraping and teaches you how you could build them and not get IP-banned by every site out there.
