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.
The week before Christmas

The canal at Devizes earlier today as we passed through. You'll see from the ice that we weren't passing through by boat, nor was anyone else


From the Perl for larger projects training course - a diagram to illustrate the problem of "diamond relationships". This is where a module "a" loads a module "b" and a module "c" and BOTH of those try to load module "d". This would lead to horrible double definition messages if it was allowed to proceed, but Perl's use operation looks at the %INC hash when asked to load a module, and only loads it if it's not already been done.


We're doing a whole load of inventory control work at Well House Manor - our hotel - and we couldn't find a picture of Elm Farm Yogurts online. Solution - take one ourselves.


Even in the snow, there have been lots of comings and goings by train at Melksham this week ... and at this time of year, all of our trains are in the dark. This is Tuesday's 19:47 to Swindon - 7 people on the platform, and a class 150 train in the old "Silverlink" colours from a different time and a different part of the country.


Some of the old equipment that's use to add atmosphere in the outlet centre in Swindon - yes, it was Christmas shopping day today!


Just some varied pictures from the last few days. A brief - and excellent - bite to eat "al Kitchen" with Kim this evening, and an early night; I'll be looking to hit the 24 hour supermarket VERY early in the morning for food supplies. It really feels like Christmas!
