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.
How not to call when job seeking ...

How to lose any chance you may have when calling to ask about a job:
* Call with the family in the room making plenty of noise.
* Sound desparate - ask for "anything".
* Don't give your name or introduce yourself.
* Make it obvious you haven't researched the company you're calling.
* Blurt out your request to the person who picks up the phone - don't look for the right person.
* Don't ask who you're talking to.
* Admit you've just been declared redundant at 17 and sound huffy about it.
* Make it clear that your motive is only financial ("pay") rather than something you might enjoy too.

All in a two minute phone call this afternoon. This young person didn't realise that the phone had been answered by the person who was best placed to help ... and then failed to impress quite spectacularly.

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.
