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 Our training notes are now very much out of date, but due to upward compatability most of our examples remain operational and even relevant ad you are welcome to make us if them "as seen" and at your own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 pleasure to train
When we put together our 2005 schedule, we didn't put any courses on for this week (from 4th January). It's the very first few days back in the new year, and we've found historically that people want a few days in their office to get back into the swing of things before learning anew.
However - things have been busy, and the week got filled with training. It was a real pleasure to be running some more advanced MySQL training yesterday - looking at complex joins
and remote access - with security issues such as firewalling, NATS and IP rewrite. Today will be a Java Utility Classes day, and tomorrow it's Tomcat.
Perhaps it's just me ... but it's a real pleasure to train people - to help them learn the strengths of using a web based PHP system v RMI to access remote databases, or to show them a simple solution to an issue and same them hours and days of work. Don't get me wrong - I enjoyed the Christmas break, but it's great to be back. (written 2005-01-05, updated 2006-06-05)
