A virtual environment is a tool that helps to keep dependencies required by different projects separate by creating isolated python virtual environments for them. Virtual Environment should be used whenever you work on any Python based project. It is generally good to have one new virtual environment for every Python based project you work on.

Welcome, in the next post we will do an EDA and data visualization with plotly (you can download the dataset here), we will also create a Dashboard using Streamlit and finally, we will deploy it through Heroku.

Before starting, we intend to answer the following questions.

  • What is the percentage of free video games?
  • Which video game category has the most overall ratings?
  • What category of video games are the most installed?
  • What are the best video games according to google play?

Linux (Pop!_OS 20.10) I’m here

When you want to start your project, you can use the data sets offered by sites like Kaggle, but you can get data using web scraping.

You want to extract a certain number of posts from each company and then apply Machine learning techniques.

An implementation of this code can be directly found at my GitHub page here: https://github.com/anthoguille/web_scraping_linkedin

What information you want to scrape from the website

  1. Name
  2. Date
  3. Post
  4. Likes

Note: You could also add the “Number of posts”, in this case we will.

Press F12 or right-click on the page then go to inspect.
