We wanted to make an attempt at web scraping as it's an area we were previously unfamiliar with. We chose to scrape stock data as it would be both practical and interesting.

How It Works

User enters a stock symbol along with a date to track from, and the GUI presents all relevant data about the stock with a graph of it's change over time.

Lessons Learned

  • Create a project outline before coding starts
  • SQL databases work well for storing and accessing data
  • Implementation is often easier with Python than in C
  • Googling skills significantly decrease after 4:00 a.m.
