Webscrapers Mailing List

Daniel Stenberg, one of the primary authors of the libcurl library on which the PHP cURL extension is based, was kind enough to comment on and clarify a recent blog post of mine regarding web scraping using the PHP and cURL. He later sent me a tweet to invite me to a new mailing list for web scraping enthusiasts just before tweeting a public invitation. In addition to the mailing list itself, the web site also has links to books (including my book) and popular tools related to the subject. I think this is awesome and I encourage anyone with an interest in web scraping, professional or recreational, to join.

    Hello, how long your book will available in print version

  2. Unfortunately, I don’t have an answer to that question. I was hoping it would be available by this point, but sadly it’s not. If you’d like to express your support for the print edition of the book, please contact the publisher at http://www.phparch.com/policies/contact-us/ or on Twitter at http://twitter.com/phparch. I appreciate your interest and will definitely announce the book’s print availability once I get more information.
