Playing with Beautiful Soup
I've been wanting to play with BeautifulSoup for quite a while now but haven't really had a reason to parse any web pages. But while taking a look at my highly unscientific and probably heavily biased( most of my traffic seems to be coming from language specific sub-reddits ) "What's your favorite Scripting Language" Poll, I thought "Wouldn't it be cool to try to pull this data and plot it in python?" A perfect excuse to play with BeautifulSoup and pandas.
There wasn't really any reason to use pandas, I could have plotted it just as easily with matplotlib, but I like pandas.
