Where do I find the teacher's notes on 'saving the information to a csv file or database' (as mentioned in the video)?

The video (~6:30 ish) mentions that "for more information on saving the information to a CSV file or database" that "this can be found in the teacher's notes". But I am unable to find the teacher's notes anywhere? Any ideas?

Thanks Anthony

treehouse does have 2 courses, 1 on python and databases(sqlalchemy) and another one to handle csv files

It´s in the zip file in the Downloads section below the video. Here is a direct link: https://treehouse-code-samples.s3.amazonaws.com/scraping_data_from_the_web.zip

OK cool, thank you. I'm keen to see how I'd write my results to a DB. Thank you.

It should be somewhere below the video. If you're watching the videos through a tablet or smartphone you won't be able to see the teacher's notes.

I am watching on desktop, this video doesn't have any teacher's notes. That was confusing and typing the urls was a bit frustrating when it would have been fairly easy for them to add them in the notes...

Anyway, I am also interested in learning how to save/move the results as well, hopefully its in the 'testProject' from the .zip file.
