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.
Far from the sea, but close to the heart

The town of Weedon in Northamptonshire was the home of a great fort built by one of the Kings George about 200 years ago as a last retreat against the invading French, and that location was chosen because it's further from the sea than any other place in England.

I wasn't too many miles from Weedon last week, training at a company where they have a "dress down" day once a month, and collect money from employees for local charities for the privilege of dressing down. Noble action, noble intent. Our talk turned to what constitutes a local charity, and we had a chuckle that one of their charities a couple of month ago was the RNLI - the Royal National Lifeboat Institution .... when they're so far from the sea! And yet, the RNLI is an organisation that, I believe, receives no government funding and does such good works. Far from the sea, but close to the heart.
