As a side note see a tutorial on urllib and requests and try them at the
same time

see for python 3.x; 3.4 or 3.6

also see the data type received by the different combinations, when you
should use .read() etc

also use utf-8 or unicode like .decode("utf8")

Well play around fool mess with it, feel free as when you'll do serious
stuffs you won't need to test to know what should be done or not, what
breaks it or not.

summary : learn it well from the begining

Finding the right package.

Hum either in your beginner learning path you learn popular third party


You find how the people round the net did what you are doing, see how they
did it and what modules they used


google "module <taskname>"


browse pypi

or _long term_

never stop reading about python. so you'll constantly discover new things
and reduce the probability of you not knowing how to do something.

Hope it helps,
