Welcome to a beginner-friendly Python Project on Selenium and Web Scraping. We’ll build our own automation tool that scrapes the homepage of Amazon Prime Video for a list of movie and TV show titles, and then iterate through each link scraping key elements such as titles and ratings with BeautifulSoup. We’ll create our own database of content on the platform and then as a final example, visualize a word cloud with our dataset.
