Tech and other challenges in Open Courts project

A session at Rubyslava / PyVo #31 - Open Data Edition

Scraping data from ASP.NET based sites can be tricky. Dealing with automatic form filling, viewstate variable and dynamic POST fields is a necessity in this case. Normalizing and linking raw data on which we can never assume its completeness is hard. Especially when matching judges from various sources only by their names. Building open data sometimes requires direct contact with departments of our government and as we all know, this is the part where the real fun begins.
