#100DaysOfCode, Day 011 – Quick and Dirty Web Page Download

Watched another Corey Schafer video on how to scrape web pages.
Thought that would be handy in my image from a web page download project.
Corey’s an awesome teacher. The video was fun and it taught me lots.

Then started hacking away at my little project.
And then realised that the site has rss feeds.
I could just process them instead of scraping a page.
Went looking for a quick way to do that.
Found the Universal Feed Parser.

Got the rss feed and am now playing with it.
That is all I had time for today.
But I learnt lots.
Will probably get back to the project on Wednesday.

Office beckons for the next two days.
Hope to keep up the streak by doing something productive though.

Today was fun!
Today was also the day, I realised, I actually love coding.
I have no clue how 4 hours passed me by!
