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 Our training notes are now very much out of date, but due to upward compatability most of our examples remain operational and even relevant ad you are welcome to make us if them "as seen" and at your own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))
Next course - 7th January 2008, Regular Expressions
Yesterday afternoon ... I finished my training for 2007, and I'm now looking forward to two weeks of days with a different metric. Don't get me wrong - I utterly enjoy the training but all sorts of things have been stacking up to attend to including personal time. So it's not "quiet" but rather "different".
In past years I've suggested that this diary will reduce in frequency over the festive period, but that's not happened - so no such suggestion this year. Truth be told, I find more interesting technical facts to point out, more things to report, and I could double rather than halve.
Oh - I talked about the next course in mys subject line. Guess I should provide a link here
to it, and to the Java Bootcamp
that follows it. (written 2007-12-21)
