Data from the real world is rarely presented in a way that is perfect for analysis – as such, knowing how to properly extract and clean data is therefore an integral skill for all data scientists. This course will walk you through how to use Python to retrieve and parse data through the powerful tools provided by APIs.
In this course, you will learn how to:
- Understand what APIs, JSON files and XML files are, and how to use them
- Make URL requests to retrieve data
- Retrieve, format and parse JSON data using the JSON library, and XML data using the BeautifulSoup library
- Write XML and JSON data to a CSV file
- Read XML and JSON data from a local file
Frameworks and tools covered: Python 3.6, Anaconda 5.2, Jupyter Notebook 5.5, Beautiful Soup 4.6
