This week, we're updating our course layouts and descriptions. Presentation and materials always gently change over time, but just occasionally there's a need to make a step change to clear out some of the old and roll in the new. That's now happening - but over a long and complex site it's not instant and you'll see sections of the site changing up to and including 19th September.

And now for some posts a bit more technical

There seem to have been fewer technical tips and more other news - hotel - local news, etc, of late. That's because there's been so much happening.

On the campaign for an improved / more appropriate train service in Wiltshire, where a robust hurdle has been shifted. On the Unitary authority side, where new structures have been put into place, including the Area board and Community Area Partnerships. On and with the Chamber of Commerce, where further local activities have been going on rather than a reliance on the centralized (so not so specific) Wessex Association of Chambers. On the hotel side, and on the training side too where the startled "everything stops" of the financial crisis has given way in the final quarter to a revival - and indeed some people playing "catchup" so that I've been more that busy training people, week in and week out.

No business stands still, and that's applied to our course through this year. There have been no meteoric rewrites ... programming languages don't usually change suddenly out of all recognition as programmers need a continuity to know that code written in 2006 will still work in 2009, and this year's code [2009] will still work, and work well, for them in 2012. Most code is written not only to do a job, but to continue to do that job, after all. But we have added - to the start of each of our programming courses - an extra day that's for non-programmers to learn some of the first principles, based on the language they'll be learning for the rest of the week. And any doubts we had about the uptake of these extra days were soon squashed; we're finding them very popular, and effective too in helping people who have never codes before but now want and/or need to to be able to do so. See what's on these extra days [here].

So I'm going to follow up here with a series of technical articles ... "I must share this tip" is still something that I keep coming up with while training, even though I haven't had the time. And I have a sock more full to get out over Christmas too in case I'm short on words. If you're looking to learn from us in 2010 ... the course details / dates for the whole year are on line for the next year.
