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.
Open Source becomes mainstream

Our business is small enough for us to look at any changes in the patterns of customer booking and ask ourselves whether something we've noticed is a trend ... or simply caused by the asyncronous booking events happening to come in a burst or a drought.

I think I have spotted a trend in the last 3 to 6 months. A growth in on site (private course) training requirements that's not been matched by anything like the same grown in bookings on public courses, even though we've had several of those full and people waitlisted - something we try to avoid.

Why the trend? Perhaps because Open Source is becoming more accepted and more mainstream in some larger organisations. Rather than one or two people working on some web site or research project with the languages we teach, we're seeing whole teams being trained and once the customer needs 4 or more people to learn the same thing at the same time, a private course makes economic sense.
