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.
Perl 6 - a Practical Extraction and Reporting example!

Always looking for an excuse to write little demo scripts - especially in Perl 6 which was new as an official release at Christmas, ... and had such an opportunity today. A datafile containing 2,500 records - station usage - and seeing how many were smaller in passenger numbers that Melksham in 2014 and 2015.

Script [here], data [here].

Answers to the question:
There are 2538 stations listed
There were 388 smaller than Melksham in 2014
There were 597 smaller than Melksham in 2015

Happy to train you on Perl 6 ... please ask ;-)
