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.
I have not programmed before, and need to learn

Yesterday was the second day of my Learning to Program introductory course - for delegates who are learning to program - as well as learning a particular language, and (since the target language is C), I wrote a number of new C examples. And these examples were written in front of the delegates to show not only the final result but also how the result is reached!

Here they are:

Arrays and their use
Opening and reading data from a file
Data validation and more maintainable code

To demonstrate that there are many similarities between languages - learn one and you know (at least) some of the principles for others, I also wrote A short piece of PHP.

All twelve examples are indexed under our Learning to program resource. And if you need to learn to program in Lua, or Ruby, or C, or Python ... email me and I'll be happy to run two extra days in those language. If you're new to programming with Tcl, PHP or Perl being your target, again get in touch - we have different and well suited solutions there too.
