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.

Have I got you guessing? These are the names of the various generations of computers I have used for Unix and Linux training over the years. For each generation, we've used a sequence of names that relate to each other, and are not the names of people (get too confused with user accounts on an admin course!). The "fish" machines were in the First Alternative days, then we had the Indian Cuisine, days of the week [Linux] and herbs [Windows] and now the local places.

A memorable course I gave in 1998 (or so) to a company in Swindon ... and I had Ms Herring and Mr Whiting on my course, and machines with their names also on the course. Bit of an co-incidence. And hadn't happened again in years.

"What's the name of your machine" I asked my delegates this morning to find out who was who on the network. "I don't know" says one delegate "but it's got my name on this one. How did you know I would choose this seat". It turns out that Richard Holt [name published with permission] is seated at holt ... and I find it a second curiosity that he's also with a Swindon based company.
