Welcome to Well House Consultants' website. We offer training courses in a variety of Open Source subjects, including Lua, which is the technology that we're covering on this page. Please follow one of the links at the top of the page if you're looking for another of our technologies.
Courses run at our own training centre in Melksham, Wiltshire, England. Because many of our subjects are niche, we also provide overnight accommodation in our own hotel rooms within our training centre, and you may book the course and accommodation as a single package.
We run public courses, each of which is scheduled to run from 3 to 9 times per year, and on which we accept bookings from different organisations and individuals who wish to learn about Lua following our published agenda. Public courses are all written by ourselves, lead by our own tutor, and limited to just eight delegates per course so that the tutor has plenty of time to answer any questions that arise, and provide personal support during practical sessions.
We also run private courses for individual companies / organisations. Private courses are scheduled to suit our client's needs, and can run at our training centre or at customer premises almost anywhere in the world. Because our course materials are written by ourselves and modular, we can tailor private courses to suit our client's needs.
Lua is a language with a small footprint, and
one that's distributed under a very flexible Open Source license. Which
makes it ideal for integration into a wide variety of products from
computer games to virus detection products, in which it provides the
users with the ability to tailor the software to their own needs.
At Well House Consultants
, we run:
• a 4 day
public Lua course
for delegates who are new to programming,
to give them a good grounding on the fundamentals of programming
and in particular how it is applied to Lua.
• a 3 day
public Lua course
for delegates who are already
programmers in another language, to give them a good grounding on
the fundamentals of Lua.
If you've a group of three or more delegates who wish to learn Lua
at the same time, a Specially Run Courses
course can be arranged, and for larger groups we
can also run a Private Courses
course at your offices. Such courses are tailored to
meet your requirements - for example, we can extend the coverage of
topics beyond those on the public course. Please contact us
to discuss the detail of what you need.
Lua was created in 1993 by members of the Computer Graphics Technology Group
at PUC-Rio, the Pontifical University of Rio de Janeiro, in Brazil.
It is a 'multi-paradigm' language, with a small set of general features that
can be extended to fit different problem types, rather than providing a more
complex and rigid specification to match a single paradigm. This means that
it's especially important to plan your programming and the techniques you
use in Lua, using its flexibility to make coding appropriate in each case.
