I have a small budget for "pragmatic learning".
Here, I would like to learn how to easily pinpoint the source of datas that are used to render a page. I have used firebug and chrome's web dev tools, but either these are limited or my knowledge thereof are limited.
Hence I would like to enhance my toolbox in web page mining.
I have a specific representative problem in mind, which we can discuss if you're interested.
Solution can be through GUI or programmatic (I am versed with Python, Matlab, R, and rusty in Java and C, but open to any other language).
NOTE: It should be clear that this "job" is more for a hacker/scraper profile than a web developer profile, but the only requirement is that you are able to find a solution and explain it.
