What is the Extract Summit 2022 coding contest?
Calling all data lovers and web data enthusiasts! We’re excited to be back in person at the Extract Summit 2022—and what better way to get things rolling than with a coding contest?
This is the time to let your web scraping skills shine. Crawl and scrape all expected items from a given website using Scrapy Cloud. The first to succeed claims bragging rights and an exclusive grand prize.
Don’t fret if you don’t win—lucky participants will get some cool prizes too!
The contest is free to join and open to everyone.
Make sure that you’ve registered your Scrapy Cloud account and have Scrapy Discord access. You’ll need to submit your registration form as well.
Once these are in place, you’re ready to take part in the contest when it launches on 28th September.
Here’s how the contest will go:
For a few days before the contest, we will enable a testing website so you can practice and prepare a code base. Once the actual contest starts, simply update your code to point to the contest website and update your crawl and extraction logic accordingly.
Good luck, and may the data be ever in your favour!
