From clicks to cribs - How to find your dream home with web scraping

Looking for a new home can be a difficult task, especially when you have specific criteria in mind and there is a housing crisis in the city you want to move to. However, as a web developer, you have a secret weapon at your disposal - web scraping.

In this talk, we'll explore how you I used a bit of TypeScript and web scraping techniques to find suitable homes - and how you can do that too! We'll dive into the technical details of how to set up a web scraper using TypeScript and check out popular libraries such as Cheerio and Playwright. So, say goodbye to endless waiting, refreshing, clicking and scrolling, and hello to your future home!
