Hack 8 - Challenge 5 - Price Tracker

Free
As a Cost Manager it is important to be able to understand the price trends of key materials components, such as steel, concrete and copper and currency fluctuations. Currently it is a very manual process to extract this information, and this data isn't well recorded so we aren't able to understand trends in prices.

This challenge involves creating a webscraping tool to track the price trends of key materials over time using the sources provided. The materials we are interested in include steel, copper and concrete as well as currency fluctuations. You should create a dashboard to display these prices as well as key analytics such as change in month/qtr. You could also include some guages that will alert the user when prices rise above a certain threshold. The data sources must be displayed on the dashboard.

You should include a plan to deploy the solution using an Azure Function (or similar) so that the webscraping tool can run on a daily basis to ensure that the data extracted is consistently up to date.
