Adventures of a Scruffy Nerf Herder

Mix a little WebDriver toss in some CraigsList

14 July 2010

A while ago I caught a wild hair to create a program to scrape CraigsList for tech jobs. Chris McMahon, fellow friend and creative QA extraordinaire is credited with turning me onto this idea. He created essentially the same script but in ruby, what a crazy simple notion. I tend to spend most of time in Python so I thought I'd jump ship back to my Java roots and try my hand at my own implementation.

I'll be honest... I was shocked at how reliant I've become on Python's built-in libraries and how much Java I've forgotten. This was a super fun side project and I bet I'll toss it into use. As I add updates to the code (this was my first draft) I'll make the code available for download.

Take a peek at the code here: download code
