Retiring, March 2020 - sorry, you have missed our final public course.
The Coronavirus situation has lead us to suspend public training - which was on the cards anyway, with no plans to resume

Please ask about private 'maintenance' training for Python, Tcl, Perl, PHP, Lua, etc
Happily continuing private consultancy / programming work
 
Business is the predominant user of Tomcat, Perl and Tcl

I started using Open Source languages as a hobby about 10 years ago, but I became involved in them with my work ("Graham ... you know some Perl, don't you? .....") and these days I'm fortunate to earn my living from what was just a hobby.

Is the predominant use of Open Source languages the hobby / personal user, or the business user? How could we possibly find any statistics / measures / indicators?

I've noticed a consistent pattern in our web logs from this site - our traffic is double on a Monday - to - Friday compared to our Saturday and Sunday traffic; I can read an "ls" report of daily log files like a calendar to tell me days of the week. And the difference is even more significant as we have a noticeable "crawler" traffic from search engines indexing our pages which averages out to a constant 7-day-a-week, 24-hour-a-day spread.

Search engine terms give a further clue - that's words entered into known search engines that bring visitors to our site:
For Tomcat for every visitor on Sunday, we got 2.94 on Monday
For Perl, the ratio is 1 : 2.73
For Tcl, it is 2.63
and those are pretty significant figures; I've looked around at some of our other subjects too - and the ratio for PHP is 2.09, for Java is 2.05, and for Python is 1.88; slightly lower figures but still significant.

Overall sample size for the detailed statistics was 15000 search terms entered on Sunday and Monday last for hits on our www.wellho.net web site.
