Starting path for building database through scraping


#1

Good evening all.

I am completely new to coding and thought about picking it up when I ran into scraping while finding out how to gather lots of information from many different sites.

I need to do this to create a database about a particular industry then proceed to analyze this data and make recommendations for my employer.

Before I embark on this journey I’d like to get some idea if my first steps are going in the right direction.

Which path would be recommended for me to start in?

Thank you all in advanced.

Arcazz.

Python sounds like a good option, python is good at scraping (scrapy, selenium, bs4), good at data analysis (panda) and it supports databases

so start with learning python i think
