Scraping Data

Today my boyfriend showed me one of his data science projects. He scraped data from wikipedia and made graphs on musical artists and their sales, and went further to define metrics to measure their successes. I've used R mostly for graphing and data manipulation, so learning about this project that was written in Python opened up so much opportunity for me. Now that I know how to get data from internet, I can do anything! Maybe my final project would be scraping data from internet using Python.
