Welcome to Well House Consultants' website. We offer training courses in a variety of Open Source subjects, including SQL and (MySQL and SQLite), 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 SQL and (MySQL and SQLite) 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.
MySQL and SQLite are databases engine that are
robust and efficient, easy to install and learn, secure, and available
on many operating systems. They differ substantially in scale and use
because MySQL runs as a stand alone server application, whereas SQLite
is built into other applications. Both are available Open Source, but
under very different licenses, and MySQL also has commercial licensing
At Well House Consultants
, we run:
• A 2 day public SQL course
introduces you to the installation, use and
administration of the MySQL database, and covers database design and how
MySQL and SQLite are used from PHP, Perl, and Python. These are the topics that
you'll need to know about if you're a programmer who's writing or maintaining
code in one of those languages (or another language), or if you're going to
be a DB Admin for a straightforward Database driven site.
If you've a group of three or more delegates who wish to learn about SQL
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 - please contact us to discuss the detail of what you
You'll not be surprised to learn that SQL databases are behind many of
the pages on this web site. Our course booking system uses them, our
diary is maintained
through them, and the data and even the images for our daily tips and techniques are
managed by MySQL.
MySQL was written and maintained by MySQL AB. They were bought out by Sun,
who in turn have been taken over by Oracle. So MySQL, although Open Source,
is now an Oracle product too.
