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.
Golden Nugget

On Tuesday evening, I was sitting in the "Golden Nugget", with my soup and salad ... and a nice piece of beef and glass of beer. Old wooden signs pointed one way to Santa Fe, the other way to Las Vegas, and in a third direction to Toiletten.

I had pulled off the German Autobahn, on spec, to find a room for the night as I got tired of driving. How is it that a roadside stop at the equivalent of a motorway service area can be such a pleasure in one country, and leave you feeling like unloved profit-fodder in another?

This is a page archived from The Horse's Mouth at http://www.wellho.net/horse/ - the diary and writings of Graham Ellis. Every attempt was made to provide current information at the time the page was written, but things do move forward in our business - new software releases, price changes, new techniques. Please check back via our main site for current courses, prices, versions, etc - any mention of a price in "The Horse's Mouth" cannot be taken as an offer to supply at that price.
