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.
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  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
