Python programmer specializing in web scraping

Parkville, Australia

Hi there - for the last few years I have ... morespecialized at web scraping. In this time I have extracted data from websites that require parsing JavaScript/AJAX, using proxies, solving CAPTCHA's, and contain millions of records. I prefer to quote a fixed fee for projects, so that clients have confidence about the total cost and I have incentive to be productive. I use Amazon's EC2 for my web crawling infrastructure. I can provide scraped data in whatever format is required: CSV, XML, MySQL, etc. (Most clients prefer CSV.) Much of my web scraping infrastructure is open sourced to make sharing solutions with clients easier: http://code.google.com/p/webscraping I also make websites that run on Google App Engine (free hosting) with web2py. I speak native English, fluent Esperanto(!), intermediate Mandarin, and basic Korean. Feel free to contact me to discuss your project. (Note that I will not work with adult related websites.) less
