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.
Finding variations on a surname

Here's a little demonstration of how you can use PHP to look for a 'similar word' - in this case, from a file of surnames. Have I done all the hard work? No - I crawled for some surnames to add to my demonstration file, and I used PHP's built in functions to do the hard work!



Run Demonstration or see program code. Try it with London, Ellis, Johnstone, Smith and Briscoe. Learn how to do it on a PHP Techniques Workshop
