Our facilities to support Well House Consultants Courses
It stuck me as I was reviewing web pages that I often talk about our courses, I often talk about the hotel ... but I rarely talk about about some of the facilities at and around the hotel to support our courses.
Our library includes some 700 books on the subjects we teach - here is a selection. What book is going to suit you
? It's a hard question to ask mail-order, but at Well House Manor you can browse our shelves and say "I like this book - I get on with it well, and I'll order it online". Not all our books are the very latest editions (and we certainly don't deal in books) but never the less they're a very useful resource. Although technology moves on very quickly, the programming languages behind the technology doesn't
- and that's because companies and programmers want to write logic that will last for years, through several generations of technology. Programming is very much the calm at the eye of the storm!
Our training centre IS
a hotel. Not because we base ourselves in someone else's hotel - but because we have added a hotel for the technical business visitor to our training facilities. With niche subjects, delegates come from far and wide and very few could commute no matter where we are. The picture here shows our reception - manned by professional hotel staff, ready to check you in any time from 3 p.m. on the evening before your course starts, to make you comfortable, ensure you make yourself at home ... and that you're online and know where the coffee machine is!
Accommodation - the rooms - is to a five star standard. We don't offer a night porter, nor a bar, and so we couldn't be five star overall - we're different; we're tailored to the delegates. Delegate have access to the library, to the training room, to our systems 24 hours a day while they're with us. All beds are at least king, all room spacious and we positively encourage you to take your training machine up to you room - and / or plug in your own laptop too. Our 50Mb connection is available, unlimited save by our AUP, to all.
Here's a full course in our "Wilts" training room. Each delegate has substantial desk space, their own notes and systems to use, and an excellent view. By keeping the group sizes small, we maximize everyone's learning.
There are times when a slick presentation works. And there are times (such as in this example here) where it does NOT. Here. I was teaching Object Oriented Design, and a set of diagrams worked through with the class shows not only what the final result is but - much more importantly for system designers and programmers - it shows in steps the mindset behind the design - how the design was reached, and why!
At Well House Manor in Melksham - shown in this article - we run courses on programming in Perl, PHP, Python, Ruby, Lua, Tcl, C, C++ and Java. We also cover Linux, MySQL, and httpd and Tomcat web server deployment. (written 2010-09-02, updated 2010-09-03)
