For 2023 - 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 Our training notes are now very much out of date, but due to upward compatability most of our examples remain operational and even relevant ad you are welcome to make us if them "as seen" and at your own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))
A day looking ahead for Well House Consultants
On Tuesday, Lisa and I attended a series of seminars at the Arc College in Trowbridge, laid on by our bankers (HSBC). There are times that we spend so much time working on the day-by-day business of running courses, booking hotel rooms, paying bills, and the rest that we don't take a step back and look at the bigger picture, nor look to changes in the law (especially tax and employment law), in what's available that might be of use, and common change of practise. So it was on that basis that we took a day that we really couldn't spare ... and spared it.
I won't go into the details of all the talks. Some included ideas which, great through they were, would not be for us. And a number of issues came up, time and again, relating to business premises where, basically, we're now decided, fixed, stable for 10 years. There's a lot happened in the last 2 years on that side, of course, and listening carefully I ended up convinced that most of the setups and advise we have taken have been correct for us, and we're with the right team.
Personally, I stand on BOTH sides of the floor at presentations. And there's an extra bonus from days such as HSBC's. A chance for me to study who others present and say "I can learn from that" or "let that be a warning to me NOT to ..."
