    Hello. Can You recommend me module with ML in Perl and optimal setup for them for prediction petrol price? Input are 10 financial values. I need it to school project.

    I think you're giving Python too much credit. Replacing symbols with words doesn't make the language simpler, as you still need to know the exact behaviour, edge cases, and failure modes, to understand the program correctly. Just because you can *guess* that `pass` is a no-op, just as `{}` is in bracketed languages, doesn't mean you understood the program or that your guess about the reasons of why the statement was used is a correct one.

    sub authenticate ( Str:D :$login, Str:D :$password ) {

    Hello Sergey,

    I can confirm that. (I'm a co-organizer of

    ML with Perl is definitely a popular topic, and seemed to be one that got people interested in taking another look at the language.

    Thanks to Adam for giving the talk, and keep up the good work Sergey.
