Well House Consultants offer training courses in a variety of Open Source programming languages. Public courses will be run at our headquarters in Melksham, Wiltshire. Courses tailored to suit individual client needs can be run at your site. Typically we have good availability if you book three months in advance; occasionally we have short notice availability too, so please do ask!
Courses are all written by ourselves, and lead by our own tutor. We recommend that you limit courses to fifteen delegates so that the tutor has plenty of time to answer any questions that arise, and provide personal support during practical sessions.
The Linux operating system is prevalent on servers,
and with good cause. It's an excellent, Open Source
operating system, robust, and with a very wide range of features and
utilities. It's efficient in operation and there are lots of people
who know it and will support it. Linux is a computer scientists
operating system still - in other words it's really not got an ease and
simplicity of operation (the plug and play of Windows)
At Well House Consultants, we can't possibly provide training on every
part of Linux even though it's our own main operating system and we've
been using it for ages. We've chosen to provide a limited range of short
courses to suit the needs of our customer base:
• Linux Basics
- a one-day
introduction for newcomers to Linux, suffient for users who will be
looking after a simple website on a server they do not administer.
• Linux Administration
one-day introduction which follow on from the Linux Basics day.
• Linux Web Server
and configuring the AMP or LAMP - Apache httpd, MySQL and PHP, and their
• Deploying Apache / Tomcat
is a course for delegates who will be deploying Java based applications
and need an appreciation of both the Apache [ex Jakarka] Tomcat and the
Apache httpd server and how they work together.
In combination, the first three courses will give you a good grounding if you're
setting up a web server system within a clean, firewalled environment with
other services such as DNS, network login service if needed, mail servers,
and the external firewall taken care of by others for you. As a combined
course, the 4 days are known as Deploying
We are able to offer some additional Linux elements on private courses -
please do ask us.
We use Apache web servers on this site that you're visiting at the
moment, and on our in house systems and other sites too. Some of these
are quite large sites - www.wellho.net handles hundreds of page requests
every minute from its anthology of 15000 pages, some of which are true
html files, and others are PHP, Perl, Python and Tcl, backed up by
MySQL databases. Apache really does provide poweful servers!
