An overview is given of recent progress in the calculation of positron scattering on atoms and molecules using the convergent close-coupling method. Particular emphasis is given to those cases where positronium formation is one of the reaction channels, as well as the importance of demonstrating convergence with increasing orbital angular momentum of the bases used. Targets considered are atomic hydrogen, lithium, and molecular hydrogen.
