This book is a great introduction to Python. It also introduces several related web technologies. For web scraping, you will be learning more about parsing HTML, JavaScript, and JSON REST API’s. You will dip into Natural Language Processing and character encoding. There is also a quick chapter on OCR so you can get text from images. Naturally, there is some talk of MySQL to store the information. 200 well written pages, legendary O’Reilly quality.
