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.
Big number

I was reading that the president of Google recons there's 5 million terabytes of data out there to index ... and that they're only a tiny part of the way into it. What does that look like?

5000000000000000000

Hmmm

Commentatorsays ...
Custard:5000000Tb to bytes = 5497558138880000000
Shurely?

What we call a 'b*stard' number as it contains two bases. Base 10 in the 5 million and base 2 in the Terabyte part assuming that 1 Terabyte == 1 Tebibyte (2^40).
At least they didn't say 5 Billion Gigabytes.. You would have to guess they mean a US billion as opposed to a UK billion ;-)

US 5000000000Gb to bytes = 5368709120000000000
UK 5000000000000Gb to bytes = 5368709120000000000000
If I'm not mistaken...

Perhaps they mean 5 Exbibytes
5Eb to bytes = 5764607523034230000

(Corrections welcome, I sincerely hope these answers are correct as they come from code I use in a live storage allocation application)

B ;-)
