Bright Data, the Israeli web data platform, has announced a web scraping conference called ScrapeCon.
The one-day virtual event will take place on November 7. Registration is free of charge.
Bright Data calls ScrapeCon the definitive event of the industry that’s been opened to the public for the first time. I’ve never heard of it before, so I assume it was either a well-kept secret or took place in-house.
In any case, ScrapeCon will have two tracks:
- Thought leadership track aimed at company executives. It will explore the operational and financial aspects of data collection, as well as potential uses of AI in our field. There will also be a keynote speech overviewing the state of web data and its future trajectories.
- Developer track that will make up the bulk of the conference. Its presentations will cover a variety of topics covering the lifecycle of a web scraping project: from choosing the tooling, avoiding blocks, handling interactive content, building reliable datasets to a Q&A session addressing the challenges of complex projects.
ScrapeCon will be dominated by Bright Data’s developers and executives. However, the line-up also includes a healthy selection of industry professionals from companies like Rakuten, Kaggle, Ixigo, and more. In addition, you’ll find familiar faces like Pierluigi Vinciguerra from Web Scraping Club and Tiffany Janzen from Tiff in Tech.
You can see the full line-up, agenda, and register for the event on ScrapeCon’s official website.
