This is a two part project to be written using mainly python (though C may also be used for calculations / libraries that cannot be done / do not exist in Python.)
1. Web scraper.
I need a web scraper that will regularly scrape data from a series of web pages. This part of the program should be able to take a list of proxies to be used if there is an error and access is denied to a website.
2. Data analysis.
Statistical analysis will be performed on the data gained from the web scraper. This will involve a regression analysis to predict sales using more than 20 independent variables.
The program overall should be able to run in the background on my Windows 7 machine. The refresh rate for the raw data gained from the scrape should be variable. When opened, I will like a very simple presentation of the statistical analysis. This GUI does not need to look pretty at all. It just needs to be easily read and functional (i.e. no colours, large enough text.)
Finally, the winning bidder will need to sign one of these electronic non-disclosure agreements (all costs covered):

Thanks for taking the time to consider this project. I look forward to further discussion with the successful bidder.
