How to use web scraping in Elixir to gather useful data

Businesses are investing in data. The big data analytics market is expected to grow to $103 billion (USD) within the next five years. It’s easy to see why, with everyone of us on average generating 1.7 megabytes of data per second. As the amount of data we create grows, so too does our ability to inherent, interpret and understand it.

Taking enormous datasets and generating very specific findings are leading to fantastic progress in all areas of human knowledge, including science, marketing and machine learning.

So how do we find this data? Web scraping or data scraping is a powerful tool to find and gather publicly accessible data.
