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.
Open Source Training Centre and Courses for 2010

It's a while since I wrote about our training centre, and some of the things that I wrote in the past have been updated or upgraded since. So here's an up to date description, written in December 2009 telling you about our location and courses for 2010.

All of our public courses are run at Well House Manor, which is set in 3/4 of an acre of private grounds, yet is just five minutes walk from the town centre of Melksham in Wiltshire [Google Map]. There's plenty of free parking for delegates, and if you come by public transport a regular bus service stops outside [Timetable]. Melksham has a train station too, and there are alternative stations with more services at Chippenham and Trowbridge [Time lookup].


We have two training rooms - the "Wilts" which we use for larger courses of up to eight delegates on public courses (that's our limit) and the "Berks" which we use if there are just one or two delegates. Both rooms have data projectors, wired and wireless internet, floor to ceiling whiteboards, and generous desk space for delegates who are attending our courses - there's plenty of room for our laptop, yours (if you wish to use it too), your course notes .... and of course your cup of coffee.

Courses are scheduled to run from 9 a.m. to 5 p.m. each day, but the tutor will be available for an extended time - from at least 8:30 to 5:30, and often much longer. You'll have access to the training room, and the library of over 700 technical books all evening ... and all night if you wish, and all of our machines are connected to our 50 Mbit internet connection which is available throughout.


Our delegates come from far and wide, as we specialise in niche training. So we also provide hotel facilities - five well appointed rooms (of a "gosh - I didn't know we had rooms this good in Melksham" standard according to a lady who popped in to book us for guests coming to a wedding while I was writing this). The rooms are available at weekends too - and we welcome delegates back - but they are designed around the need of course delegates.


Typically delegates arrive the evening before a course starts, meet other delegates over breakfast in the morning, and are refreshed and ready to learn as soon as the course starts. We're running public courses on the following subjects in 2010:
Lua - to 2 different course agendas
Perl - to 4 different course agendas
Python - to 2 different course agendas
PHP - to 5 different course agendas (likely to add 2 more shortly)
Ruby - to 2 different course agendas
MySQL - Programming and admin
Tcl / Tk / Expect - to 3 different course agnedas
Linux / Lamp - to 5 different course agendas
Apache http server and Tomcat - to 3 different course agnedas
Java - to 2 different course agendas
C and C++ - to 5 different course agendas

Our full (updated) schedule is [here] and course prices remain at £350.00 for a one day course, plus £250.00 per extra day for all courses (add 60 pounds per room per night if you'll be staying with us; all prices quoted exclude VAT)

If you have any questions ... or would like to make a booking, please phone (01225 708225 or 0800 043 8225), email (info@wellho.net) or complete our [online enquiry form]. We also offer private courses at Well House Manor or at your own offices - if you have a group of 4 or more, a private course will be lower cost and can be tailored to suit your requirements. If you have 8 or more delegates, you'll save money by having our tutor travel to you.

This is a page archived from The Horse's Mouth at http://www.wellho.net/horse/ - the diary and writings of Graham Ellis. Every attempt was made to provide current information at the time the page was written, but things do move forward in our business - new software releases, price changes, new techniques. Please check back via our main site for current courses, prices, versions, etc - any mention of a price in "The Horse's Mouth" cannot be taken as an offer to supply at that price.
