Am currently doing a self-study of hurwitz numbers and Hurwitz theory, is there a good source for one with only basic knowledge of algebraic geometry. Notes and papers are also welcome.

There was a course on Hurwitz numbers at the UC Davis a few years ago: math.ucdavis.edu/~mulase/courses/mat280f09.html Somewhere down that page (next to "References") it says: "We intend to produce lecture notes to be published". Maybe you can ask Prof. Mulase if they ever came to existence. If so, I would love to read them, too :) –  Jonas Morrissey Nov 8 '12 at 18:08

There is a nice exposition by Renzo Cavalieri that I often recommend to students:
