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.

This example references the following resources:

Source code: mapper Module: P600
#!/usr/bin/env perl6

# Read file, map all lines, sort results and display top 25

# Data file can be downloaded from http://www.wellho.net/data/rstats2015.xyz
# or from http://www.wellho.net/data/rstats2015.txt ... be careful not to
# convert tabs to spaces as the program relies on a tab seperated file!

sub getGrowth($text) {
        my @fol = $text.split("\t");
        my $pg = 1.0;
        $pg = @fol[*-1] / @fol[7] unless "NULL" ~~ @fol[*-1] | @fol[7];

my @stations = slurp("rstats2015.txt").chomp.split("\n");
my @opposite = @stations>>.&getGrowth;

@opposite = @opposite.sort({@$^a[4]});

for @opposite[0..25] -> @record {
        say @record.join(", ")
