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.
Rules, suggestions, considerations for Lua variable names

Rules for naming variables in Lua ...
* MUST start with a letter or underscore
* which MUST be followed by as many or as few letters, digits, underscores as you like
* Case sensitive (sound bite - "there are 52 letters in the alphabet"
* Variable names must NOT be Lua keywords

Suggestions for naming variables in Lua
* Make variable names from relevant and appropriate words
* Keep variable names shortish but not too short to understand
* Have a CaPiTaLiSaTiOn standard
* Standardise on English or American spelling
* Also standardise on which abbreviations are used

Also consider the following when naming your variables
* Hungarian Notation (first letter gives type)
* In Lua (and in other languages) your variable names should assist your commenting.
