(Virtual) Web Scraping using R

In this session, we’ll give an overview of how web scraping works and talk about how to assess whether web scraping is right for your project (including ethical and copyright issues). We’ll show examples of how to use the statistical software R to do several handy scraping tasks, such as automated downloading and extracting text or tables from web pages. Prior familiarity with R is helpful, but not required.
