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.
In answer to 'am I glad I started a blog' ...

Mine serve me usefully to seed our web sites as well as for regular readers, so I'm a bit of an odd one to advise you. You need to have a clear purpose that's going to carry on into the future / through the life of the blog - otherwise it can get stale and fade.

On the TRAIN blog, I sometimes wonder, simply because it dilutes forum posts. However - it is very useful in putting up a page easily and headlining it, which is what I've done with the 5.3 meeting.

On the wellho.net blog (the more personal one) it was utterly the right thing to do and here I am nearly 1100 articles later putting up, perhaps, only a half of the material that I want to. There's a lot of personal stuff and stuff about customers I don't put up - many a grumble and ripping yarn that would show someone easily identified in a poor light, and who might read it. But I've learnt to have the confidence to reveal my own thoughts, things and personallity sometimes; on a blog people read you for what you say and how you say it, and not because you admit to something you did in the past. But I do keep the "ex" and the kids off it, and largely the staff team too - not a lack of caring in and way, but to respect their privacy.

This evening, I'm meeting another MP - Ann Snelgrove. That will make - let me see - 4 .... Hey - THIS would make a good blog even if it's a bit name-droppy ... but before then I have the dentist. Must run.
