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.
New year, new C Course

Well - not completely a new course. New delegates, and lots of new examples written for them during the first day to that they can see not only WHAT work but also HOW the design of what works is put together during the day. Click on the individual source code examples, and you'll find programs to which I added further comments after we were done for the day.

Commenting in C - [source]
Also uses a function from another file - [source]

Loops and conditionals ...
Repeating code in a while loop - [source]
Good and bad for loops- [source]
If and else and use of blocks- [source]

Functions ...

Passing a reference - [source]
Passing complex data via a single pointer - [source]

Preprocessor Directives ...

See [here] for details of more upcoming public C courses.
