i wanna be able to make bots, automate web stuff like account creation and do some web scraping/crawling on the side, i believe python is great for that but how long do you think it will take me to learn?

Amanda Hansen says:

I have a list of contacts that only includes first and last names with home addresses. I have been using Spokeo ( a website that gives phone numbers and email addresses) to fill in the desired email and phone numbers I am missing from my original sheet. I have been entering in each name into Spokeo at a time and it takes way too long. How do I automate this process to increase my email list quickly without enter each name into search? Please help! Is there a way?

Thank You For Your Time!!!

And here I think mastering Autohotkey is already good enough

but seriously though AHK deserves a lot of credits I made so many cool bots with it just because it can simply WinActivate, Run, WinMaximize, etc much easier once you know.
