Bulding on knowledge from earlier Rfun workshops, useRs will be introduced to web crawling and HTML parsing. In this introductory web scraping workshop, attendees will use the rvest package to deconstruct a target site into structured data by combining limited knowledge of HTML specifications with a very limited appreciation of the HTTP protocol along with basic Tidyverse-style iteration.
