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.
Acronyms

The question "What does Java stand for" is a familiar one in my mailbox ... in a world of acronyms, it seems that folks assume that any short computer words must be sets of initials.

Here are the origins (to the best of my knowledge) of the names of the subjects we teach.




PerlPractical Extraction and Reporting Language
PythonNaming derived from Monty Python's Flying Circus
PHPOrigin: Personal Home Pages
Now: PHP Hypertext Protocol
TclTool Control Language
TkToolkit
MySQLMy is the name of the daughter of the originator ... then Structured Query Language
JavaJust a name - said to have come from the fact that the team was sitting round looking for a new name for their Oak language, drinking Java coffee.
LinuxLinus Torvalds originates this Unix-like operating system


Please let me know of any corrections - these things get confused in the mists of time ...
