The fifth meetup was organized at Code Factory on the 8th of November 2018.
Ivana kicked off the meetup by introducing us to Flask, a lightweight framework for creating websites and APIs. We learned the basics of Flask including routing, returning dynamic data from query parameters and how to style a website using HTML and CSS.
Saara gave a talk about webscraping using Requests and BeautifulSoup. The talk walked through the process of creating a webscraper by demoing a scraper she wrote to extract the menus of restaurants on Foodora.
