Hi there, I'm Kevin Sahin, the author of Java Web Scraping Handbook. I have a personal blog where I write about Web scraping and software development. I am also the founder of SaasFactory a company that operates several Software as a Service tools
Previously I spent more than four years building large scale web scrapers in the fintech industry, we're talking about millions of web pages scraped each day. I got my BS in computer science at Paul Sabatier University, in Toulouse, France. I wish I had a book like this when I started my job, to answer all the questions I had. Unfortunately, there wasn't a lot of good resources about web scraping back then. But now there is :)
