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.
We dont stand still
Our "module" training system provides an excellent groundwork on which we build tailored courses to meet YOUR training needs rather than the needs of the nearest general case that we have available. A lot of work has gone into this system which makes it easy for us to keep our manuals up to date, and to automatically change our web site descriptions as content is modernised over time.
But we're not "resting on aur Laurels".
Now that virtually all of our customers are online when at work, we're moving the sample answers out of the printed notes and onto the web site, listed under each training module. We can supply a number of alternative answers this way, and we can supply them in such a way that our trainees can cut and paste from them and make further use of the examples.
We've also starting to split our courses into a series of major sections - for example, next week's private Perl course will cover
1. The Perl language
2. Glueing technologies (SQL, HTML, XML) together with Perl
3. Designing and writing classes in Perl
and from now on, the folders of notes will have additional dividers for the main sections to make them all the more useful as reference books after the course. Courses already divided in this way include Perl Programming
and Deploying LAMP
- I'm especially happy with that last one as the single action turns our note set of about 400 pages into an introductory guide to Linux use, Linux Admin, Web site structure, the Apache httpd Web Server, MySQL Deployment, reading Perl PHP and Python and a general section coveing overall good web site structuring, design, and commercial aspects of operation. Perhaps a publisher would be interested?? (written 2005-03-18, updated 2006-06-05)
