For 2023 (and 2024 ...) - we are now fully retired from IT training.
We have made many, many friends over 25 years of teaching about Python, Tcl, Perl, PHP, Lua, Java, C and C++ - and MySQL, Linux and Solaris/SunOS too. Our training notes are now very much out of date, but due to upward compatability most of our examples remain operational and even relevant ad you are welcome to make us if them "as seen" and at your own risk.

Lisa and I (Graham) now live in what was our training centre in Melksham - happy to meet with former delegates here - but do check ahead before coming round. We are far from inactive - rather, enjoying the times that we are retired but still healthy enough in mind and body to be active!

I am also active in many other area and still look after a lot of web sites - you can find an index ((here))
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.

Public Perl courses offered:
The Perl programming language
Perl is breath of fresh air - a powerful scripting language with a short syntax and an impressive range of facilities that make for quick and effective coding in applications from heavy data handling to web page interaction, and from report generation through to systems admin tasks. But with that impressive range of facilities, you get the ability to write code that's hard to enhance and maintain, just as you get the ability to write code that is clean and efficient. So this is a language that you really need to learn from an expert rather than self-teach.

At Well House Consultants, we run:

• A 5 day Learning to program in Perl course that covers programming and Perl fundamentals, the more powerful "core" structures of the language that are required in most applications, and some of the more common advanced topics. Suitable for both newcomers to programming and those with limited prior programming too.

• A 4 day Perl Programming course that covers Perl fundamentals, the more powerful "core" structures of the language that are required in most applications, and some of the more common advanced topics. Suitable for delegates with prior programming experience.

• Our Regular Expression Course takes you deeper into Perl's powerful string handling facilities - one of the features that's brought this language to prominence.

If you've a group of three or more delegates who wish to learn about Perl 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 need. With Perl, we also have a huge range of extra training modules for niche requirements, so private courses aren't limited in topics.

We use Perl ourselves as the data tool behind this site, and our daily update is written in the language. That's in addition to a number of contract and bookkeeping scripts we've written over the years.

Perl was written by Larry Wall, who's still very much at the helm today. A new version - Perl 6 - has just been released and there are major factors that will come into play as people convert or change Be assured that we're already well informed about these and our current training will guide you towards futureproofing your code. However, we will not be offering Perl 6 training courses.
