Getting data from the web for research

I gave an internal talk at Nesta recently on ‘getting data from the web’, covering web scraping and open APIs. Its designed for researchers who might consider using these technologies but don’t know what much about them. It is not a technical guide though, so won’t help much if you want to get straight to business.

It belongs to a growing set of ‘data’ themed skills resources Nesta is collecting.
