The web has provided us all with access to a near infinite source of data about anything you could possibly imagine, and along with that an infinite realm of possibility as to what you can do with that data.
But… when it actually comes to extracting the data you need, you’ve probably discovered that it’s not so simple. Even though you could copy and paste the data manually yourself, it’s a massive waste of time and yet actually automating the extraction to get the data in the format you need seems like it requires an insurmountable wall of knowledge.
The web has grown from a relatively straight-forward system in the 90s to the incredibly large ecosystem that we have these days. Our browser’s have turned from simple text reading tools into apps capable of rendering incredibly advanced graphical interfaces.
