We’re surrounded by data. Its everywhere we go online, from apps to websites, everything today is powered by data. Sometimes when building our own data-driven apps, we may be in luck and find that there are APIs we can consume. Other times we may need to go off the beaten track, look behind the curtain and don our sherlock caps to access the data we require.

We’ll explore a few of these ideas, go through some examples and show how to use tools like a web inspector and Charles combined with technologies such as XPath, Regular Expressions and URLSession to get access to useful data that’s been locked up or abandoned, just waiting for you to come along and set it free.
