Learning to make a bot
« on: May 04, 2016, 12:56:25 PM »

Does anyone know of good sources online to begin learning about bot making? I'm not sure if it's programming or science or what kind but I'm thinking of learning the basics with the hope of possibly developing something down the line.

well i don't really know much but you need to learn as much as possible about webscraping and I think a lot of webscraping is done in python - so you will need to learn python and probably html, not to mention all the arbitrage knowhow that you will need to properly parse the data into usable arbs


you will also need to learn javascript for json. and xml too probly


as for sources where to learn this stuff - just google the shit out of it


for python i know learn python the hard way could be good

Maybe if you know (familiar with) C#, bot for betfair can be written in this solution:

Can a bot be used to make automated bets at a softbook in play?

Haven't read it myself, but I've heard good stuff.
https://www.amazon.co.uk/Programming-Betfair-Creating-Trading-Applications/dp/151143211X/ref=sr_1_sc_2?s=books&ie=UTF8&qid=1463082770&sr=1-2-spell&keywords=befair+bot

Make your own search about similar material and choose what you fancy.

As to python, a good introduction to it would be https://www.codecademy.com/.

Good luck in your endeavor.
