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.
Bitter cold

It's bitterly cold here in Wiltshire at the moment (and the "Global Warming folks are hibernating, it seems!), but how to express that in pictures? A slight sprinkling of snow, ice on the driveway gives something of a clue:



In words, I can tell you of feeling cold (that's unusual for me!) and of huddling over a heater. I can tell you of turning on our second central heating boiler at home. A long story, that one - we're on 4 levels and hot air rises, so we normally heat the bottom and let the bedrooms be a little cooler, but we do have the ability, used in the most brutal of weather, to add an extra boost of upper heat. And I could tell you of finding that both cars had flat batteries and wouldn't start for us on Saturday evening - so we walked into town (yeah - mad!) and warmed up with a really hot curry.

But here's a sunset picture from yesterday evening - with the second car also back and running, I paused at Seend by the canal bridge:



So you can see - it really IS bitterly cold in Wiltshire at the moment!
