Video recording of Sean Soutar's presentation, entitled "Gathering Data from Dynamic Web Forms using RSelenium and Docker" presented at SatRday Cape Town, UCT, 17 March 2018

Abstract:
Scraping data can be difficult especially when dealing with dynamic forms. I present a case study of how I used RSelenium and Docker to simulate a user interacting with a ASP.NET form. This was done on the South African Reserve Bank’s online statistical query to automate file downloads.
