You Belong with Me: Scraping Taylor Swift Lyrics with Python and Celery


This talk will demonstrate an example application of using Celery to extract all of the lyrics of the inspiring and influential Taylor Swift from the Internet. Using a light-hearted approach and practical Python examples, we aim to teach people the basics of using Celery for data extraction.

Celery is an open source, Python-based, asynchronous task framework which is well-suited for extracting data from webpages, APIs, and text files. With its power comes a bit of a learning curve. This talk covers some of the first questions a new Celery user might have. It will also point out some common pitfalls for beginning users.
