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.
A better design of mouth

When you think about it, having a mouth on the side of your face is something of a poor design in some circumstances. There's that awkward maneuvering of food on a fork, or with hands to get into the mouth, and the drips of curry and tomato source that fall onto your white shirt when your co-ordination falls below perfection. And the assistance has to be provided to get the chewed food to the throat too.

Surely it would be far better to have the mouth facing upward - on the top of the head - as demonstrated here by Gypsy. And little flakes of Tesco's chicken kievs which list should drop her way, be that accidentally intentionally or on purpose, will slide into the mouth, and beyond, with the minimum of effort - perhaps just the slightest tilting of the head, and a licking of the lips and a deep sign to say "Thank you"
