Francesca Giannetti

An ever-growing wealth of information can be accessed online, but often there is no easy way to obtain this information for further analysis. This hands-on workshop will introduce a solution to this problem: web scraping, a technique for extracting data and data structures from public websites. Using our browsers and the R programming language, we'll also explore strategies for handling different kinds of websites. No previous coding experience required.
