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.
Crossfertilisation, PHP to Python

Rasmus Lerdorf's "Do you PHP" talk on our Geek Cruise last October was brilliant - I heard so much about what's behind PHP and how its originator intends it to be used that it give me a real strong understanding of best practise - you'll find further details availble here and elsewhere on this site.

Python is a superb language with a different target user base / footprint to PHP. From time to time, the footprints overlap and I find myself putting Python applications on the Web from time to time. Using the best of both worlds - the strengths and knowledge of both PHP and Python, you can put together some superb "Python on the Web" applications. For training purposes, I've put a script onto our web site - you can run it through this link and link to the source (it's hsapp2.py in the course examples) as well.

The Python application looks simple - but all the ingredients you'll need are there ... picking up information from forms, sticky fields, sessions, session cart tidy ups, template files and the rest ... all within just a few K of code. And the application is well designed so that it can be easily reused, updated, maintained and extended. I've just finished writing a 10 page description of this application to be included in our public Python course, but that's a fairly intensive three days and there won't be much time to go through the details of what, for Python, is a bit of a specialist area. If you're booking a private course we can tailor it to give you full coverage, or you can arrange an extra day at our training centre to cover it after a public course.
