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.
The final step to being British

It's over ten years since Lisa moved to the UK, and she's been British for over half of that time ... but there have been just a few experiences which have taken a while to happen. Last night, I took her to her first panto and she had the experience of the leading boy, the pantomime dame, "He's behind you", the audience interaction, the children up on the stage, the topical and local cracks, the naughty jokes aimed over the heads of the kiddies, and the village hall that starts off cold and draughty and lacking in atmosphere, yet becomes abuzz during the show with real atmosphere.



I also had the opportunity to introduce her to some characters from my childhood - and other later characters - who hadn't quite made in to the USA when she lived there. Now let's see how they all ended up ...

Andy Pandy and Goldilocks discover that - oops - they have an unexpected romantic attachment that's going to break the pairings that we have all been lead to expect.


Looby Lou has always had a thing for Bob the Builder, and the two of them end up together


Chip the woodcutter's son, who was all cut out to be paired off with Goldilocks, has been swept off his feet by Peaches (one of the St Trinian's girls) who has taken him under her wing as he searches for Goldilocks. It was after they bunked for the night in the same tent, with the magic corks, when everyone dreamed of their true love.


Baby Bear Fozzy Bear - who turned out to be one of the unexpected anchors of the show who really made the evening - has found his Cuddles who appeared (out of the chorus line!) during his dream that night in the woods!


There must have been a cast of forty!



SuperTed, Spotty Man, Skeleton, Bulk and Texas Pete ... and let's not forget PC Plod, Bill and Ben the Flowerpot Men, Little Weed, the narrator, Scoop ... and a guest appearance from the Mayor of Melksham playing himself!

Final shows - a matinee this afternoon, and an evening performance at 7:30. See here. And you can find Melksham Comedy Club's home page here for other productions through the year ... or for details of next year's panto in due course.
