Tidying hierarchical data from the web with Professor Colin Rundel

Gathering data from the web presents unique challenges to the researcher. Only rarely is the data we need available as a tidy rectangle that can be easily imported and directly analyzed. During this workshop we will discuss some of the common data formats (e.g. json, xml) and data sources (e.g. APIs, web scraping) as well as the tools / packages / best practices for ingesting these data using the R programming language.
