Great course! It is beginner level as others have mentioned but the fact the site had changed was a good challenge to test my knowledge on the topics covered in the video.

Outstanding course, Martin! I’ve done nothing with web scraping, and this course gave me a real foundation. Past comments suggested this as beginner, and it sure did help this beginner. I like your teaching style, too.
