For 2023 - we are now fully retired from IT training.
We have made many, many friends over 25 years of teaching about Python, Tcl, Perl, PHP, Lua, Java, C and C++ - and MySQL, Linux and Solaris/SunOS too. Our training notes are now very much out of date, but due to upward compatability most of our examples remain operational and even relevant ad you are welcome to make us if them "as seen" and at your own risk.
Lisa and I (Graham) now live in what was our training centre in Melksham - happy to meet with former delegates here - but do check ahead before coming round. We are far from inactive - rather, enjoying the times that we are retired but still healthy enough in mind and body to be active!
I am also active in many other area and still look after a lot of web sites - you can find an index ((here))
Ruby Programming and Rails - 4 different courses in one
Week commencing Monday, 13th July ... is Ruby week!
If you're looking to learn to program in Ruby, you'll want to attend our four day Learning to Program in Ruby
If you're already a programmer, but in another programming language, and you need to convert to Ruby, start on the Tuesday and take our three day Ruby Programming
Will you be using Ruby within the Rails / web environment? If so, we're running an extra day on the Friday - that's Friday, 17th July - which is an introduction to the Rails environment. This extra day costs £350.00 (without accommodation) or £410.00 (with accommodation the night before).
So you have four choices - and whether or not you've programmed before, and whether or not you need Rails as well as Ruby, this is the week that you can learn it! (written 2009-03-26)
