Retiring, March 2020 - sorry, you have missed our final public course.
The Coronavirus situation has lead us to suspend public training - which was on the cards anyway, with no plans to resume

Please ask about private 'maintenance' training for Python, Tcl, Perl, PHP, Lua, etc
Happily continuing private consultancy / programming work
 
Satisfaction of training

I'm writing this during a final-day practical on a Perl course - 10 trainees, coding quietly as mice, as they write a web page to calculate the length of ladder that Romeo needs to reach Juliet and present the results. The program is being written to "best practise" standards - the HTML is being kept apart from the Perl for easy maintenance, inputs are being validated, etc. And the code samples that I've written for them to follow are nicely inset and they're commented and documented with POD too.

There's a great feeling of satisfaction for me ... helping 10 people learn this exciting language and skiil; some of them have used the term "re-skilling" as they move to newer pastures from their traditional mainframe areas. It's great for them, it's great for me, and it's great for their employer as he uses their new skills too. It's this "win / win / win" situation that makes training so rewarding.
