Welcome to Well House Consultants' website. We offer training courses in a variety of Open Source subjects, including PHP, 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 PHP 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.
PHP is a programming language, and it's much
more too. It's a language that's designed for use with dynamic web
pages - which means that you can put together interactive web sites
much more quickly and easily than you could do using other systems.
At Well House Consultants
, we run a
series of public courses on PHP.
• Our Learning to Progam
course takes newcomers to computer programming and teaches
them the fundamentals, and how to apply those fundamentals in PHP to
provide interactive, server side web sites.
• The PHP Programming
course which covers the PHP language itself, is an alternative for
those of your with prior programming experience. It shows how PHP is
the web page, and other important subjects such as good application
design and user data security and integrity in multipage applications.
• As well as learning the principles of programming in PHP,
you'll want to make full use of the facilities of the language to write
robust, reliable, secure and maintainable innovative web sites. Our
PHP Techniques Workshop
- 2 days -
takes you through a wide range of applications - from multipage
applications through graphics and monitoring scripts - to help you
make your sites magnetic.
• If you're going to be using Object Oriented PHP, our
1 day Object Orientation in PHP
will teach you the basics of OO, and go into some detail as to how OO
is implemented and used in PHP.
If you've a group of three or more delegates who wish to learn PHP
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
This web site that you're on at the moment makes heavy use of PHP. Even
though many of the pages have .html extensions, we're using PHP to make
subtle changes like the number you need to dial to reach us from your
country (based on IP address), and also to provide more major resources
such as the Wiki and the online booking system. Our search engine and
"page not found" handlers are also implemented in PHP, and even our filters
that protect against denial of service attacks use it.
PHP was written originally by Rasmus Lerdorf. There's a big team now - official resources [Here
