Job Description

I am looking for someone to build me a simple web scraper to be used on forums.

I need to pull the URLs and post titles for all posts which are returned from an advanced search query and then save them into a excel .xlsx file.

This short 3 min video will explain more clearly what I'm looking for. I would STRONGLY advise you to watch it before you place your bid.

I have worked with AutoIt in the past and would prefer you to use this to build the scraper. If you have another preference, that's OK but I would need you to explain your reasons for your choice.

To apply for this job, please do the following:

1.) If you have worked with AutoIt before, briefly outline your experience.
2.) Confirm you are able to build the scraper as I describe in the video.
2.) Include in your application the phrase I ask you to include at the end of the video so I can confirm you have watched it and understand my requirements.

Many thanks and I look forward to receiving your bid.

Best,

Alastair Evans
