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.
CSS training - Cascading Style Sheets (UK course)

It's Sunday ... and I've been teaching Cascading Style Sheets (or rather "I've been teaching a customer about cascading style sheets") ... one of our delegates for this week's PHP course asked me to spend a few hours going through CSS with him ahead of time.

Here's an example ... using the "KISS" approach (Keep it Simple, Stupid) to avoid the whole thing getting too complex for its own good. I've chosen to post this today to show you just how much better it is to use classes and divs than other more complex specifiers on standard HTML elements - for I have only to add in another surrounding tag and my standard classes would fail, but the classes go on working.

The source code:

<html>
<head>
<style>
table table {
  align: center;
  color: red;
  background: blue;
  }
table table tr td {
  padding-left: 100px;
  color: yellow;
  background: green;
  }
.maths{
  padding-left: 100px;
  color: green;
  background: yellow;
  }
</style>
</head>
<body>
Flubber<br />
<table width=100%><tr><td width=100% align=center>
<table border=1>
<tr><th>Say what</th><th>To whom</th></tr>
<tr><td><div align=center class=maths>Hello</div></td>
<td>World</td></tr></table>
</td></tr></table>
<br />
</body>
</html>

How it looks:
