For 2021 - online Python 3 training - see ((here)).

Our plans were to retire in summer 2020 and see the world, but Coronavirus has lead us into a lot of lockdown programming in Python 3 and PHP 7.
We can now offer tailored online training - small groups, real tutors - works really well for groups of 4 to 14 delegates. Anywhere in the world; course language English.

Please ask about private 'maintenance' training for Python 2, Tcl, Perl, PHP, Lua, etc.
Integer v float - Python

If you had f failures in s samples, what proportion failed? .6666666666 you might correctly say - but Python might not come up with that answer if you have two integer counts

>>> s = 6
>>> f = 4


And that gives:

>>> f/s
0


Will that be better if we turn it into percentages?

>>> f*100/s
66


Yes - somewhat better but still inaccurate - the real solution is to convert one of the operands into a float:


>>> f*100/float(s)
66.666666666666671
