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 Our training notes are now very much out of date, but due to upward compatability most of our examples remain operational and even relevant ad you are welcome to make us if them "as seen" and at your own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))
At the end of the course
Already, the days are getting shorter. At the end of the Python Course
, I walked along the canal with one of our delegates who - wisely - decided to stop an extra night and drive home to East Yorkshire fresh at the start of a new day, rather than drive home tired after a very full four days in which he - and other delegates - went from "what's this programming lark all about" through to having some useful little utilities written and the route ahead planned for develop able, maintainable code!
The home made Lamb and Rosemary pie at "The Magpies" was lovely, the vegetables ideally crisp, the dog sat quietly (for the most part) under the table while we ate. Although I finish the course exhausted from teaching, I also finish it feeling very rewarded ... there are now people down to the south of our county, in South East London, and up north who have learned a lot, are enthused, and are going to be able to develop themselves further - making good use of Python straight away, and really effective use of it with a bit of practise.
