Web Scraping with R
Data is more plentiful and in many ways easier to acquire than ever. While data doesn’t always come nicely formatted especially from the web(so copy paste won't work). More commonly data needs to be retrieved from a web service or web page and assembled into a usable data set.
Join us this workshop which will introduce you to the concept and practices of web scraping in R and then we will get hands dirty and walk through how to scrape data from a website.
Prerequisite: R basic knowledge required, or at least have installed R&RStudio
