For 2021 - online Python 3 training - see ((here)).

Our plans were to retire in summer 2020 and see the world, but Coronavirus has lead us into a lot of lockdown programming in Python 3 and PHP 7.
We can now offer tailored online training - small groups, real tutors - works really well for groups of 4 to 14 delegates. Anywhere in the world; course language English.

Please ask about private 'maintenance' training for Python 2, Tcl, Perl, PHP, Lua, etc.

PHP for Leisure

We can also run a private tailored course at our centre or a private course at your office.
A weekend getting the very best out of PHP

This course has been replaced by PHP Techniques

This is a two day weekend course which is designed for the delegate who writes and maintains web site(s) for local leisure groups, charities, or just for the pleasure of his own hobby - he does the work because he enjoys it, and not because he's paid for it.

Arrive the evening before the course formally starts, check in and meet the tutor and other delegates. That evening, we'll also talk informally about exactly what you want to get from the weekend so that we can tailor accordingly.

On the Saturday morning, we'll cover some of the mysteries of subjects like associative arrays, sorting, and regular expressions before moving on to cover best practise in PHP - how to write code that you can easily modify and understand later, and which is robust and secure in operation.

Lunch is provided

Multiple page applications, where users log in and follow on from one page to another, are a major element of PHP usage. We'll show you how to design and write such systems, including an introduction to 4 layer model and "MVC" techniques which allow you to keep the workings seperated from the look and feel - letting you make changes later, and to delegate the artistic elements of your site to a graphics artist, while you look after the code without the need to also learn another complete skill set.

On Sunday morning, we'll take a look at some of the standard modules that are available free of charge to you - to insert a feed from another site on your page, to identify where in the world your visitors are coming from and whether they're regular visitors or have just arrived via a search, and so on. We'll then take a look at a couple of standard PHP applications - the exact selection to be made based on what the delegates want, but we may be looking at Drupal, Simple Machines Forum and OS Commerce (for example), seeing how they're installed and tailored so that you can use the power of the standard PHP applications to do exactly what you want.

After Lunch on Sunday (which we'll provide - but nothing too heavy as you'll not want to fall asleep in front of the TV!), we'll have a look at other modules and facilities of interest - delegates may wish to look at dynamic web site tracking and providing feedback to users on popular pages. They may wish to look at genarating graphics, or at interfacing to Google maps, or at Thumbnail and Image upload and library issues.

Later in the afternoon, everyone will work on projects that relate to their own use of PHP (please bring your samples and data along) and we'll give you a helping hand to start making use of what you've learned over the weekend - so that you leave us (we can offer you a lift to the station for the evening trains) firing on all cylinders.

A working knowledge of PHP - enough to put together a straightforward page. Attendance on a beginning PHP for the leisure market or equivalent practical experience.
