Parse NBA Statistics with Openpyxl

Python & Libraries, Novice
8/18/2018 | 2:50 PM-3:20 PM | Robertson


Read NBA statistics from a Microsoft Excel sheet using the Openpyxl library. How will we know which statistics to look for and return? Text a number two players and a basketball statistic (like total points) and then the SMS response will look up the statistics of the corresponding players.


Data stored in Excel spreadsheets can be hard to read with anything other than Excel and it’s especially tough to compare two specific datasets within all that data. One possible solution? Let Python do the dirty work of finding the information for us! We'll read NBA statistics with the Openpyxl library and we'll also get the audience involved.
