Using Python for Automation

This activity explored the various ways we can write python scripts to automate tasks and make data analysis and web browsing more efficient. This LinkedIn Learning was particularly exciting because it allowed the user to participate in hands-on programming. First, we were taught how to read and write files in python. Next, we learned how to perform accurate and efficient web-scraping using BeautifulSoup, a popular python library for this purpose. Finally, we learned how to automate API calls using python, which served as an added bit of knowledge relating to my coursework in MIS 3406, where we worked with APIs to create web applications with AWS Lambda functions. This was an incredibly enjoyable lesson, and I recommend it to anyone looking to improve their python skills.
