0:00 First things first,
0:01 let's go through the ReadMe file.
0:03 Quick word of warning,
0:04 feedparser is a very very quick topic.
0:08 As you can see by this stuff on your screen,
0:10 this is not going to take you very long.
0:12 And yeah, reality is,
0:14 that's what feedparser is.
0:16 It's just that simple, that it's quick to learn.
0:18 So Day 1, you are going to pretty much do everything.
0:23 You're going to watch the videos,
0:25 set up your environment,
0:26 pull the feed and then parse it.
0:29 Okay, so it'll involve using requests.
0:32 Day 2, I'm going to show you how
0:34 to do a quick, sort of tricky sanity check
0:39 when parsing your feed.
0:41 So, watch the Feedparses and the Check video
0:45 and then that's pretty much everything you
0:49 need to know by that point.
0:51 So, I'd like you to pull and parse
0:54 an RSS feed of your choice.
0:56 A bit of practice for you on Day 2.
1:00 Now on Day 3,
1:02 just wrap it up by watching the concepts video
1:05 and then I want you to come up with something to do
1:09 with the data you're pulling from feedparser, okay.
1:13 So, again, the usual stuff is there,
1:15 like store it in the database or email it out.
1:18 Build some sort of application around it,
1:21 but I like the idea of maybe letting the user
1:25 specify from a list
1:27 what RSS tags they want to pull down, okay.
1:31 So, that could be a cool little project.
1:33 So, day three is just testing it.
1:36 Playing it around, seeing how you go,
1:38 but that's the three days for feedparser.
1:40 They're going to be very quick
1:42 and very small in size,
1:45 but enjoy them nonetheless.
