For 2023 - we are now fully retired from IT training.
We have made many, many friends over 25 years of teaching about Python, Tcl, Perl, PHP, Lua, Java, C and C++ - and MySQL, Linux and Solaris/SunOS too. Our training notes are now very much out of date, but due to upward compatability most of our examples remain operational and even relevant ad you are welcome to make us if them "as seen" and at your own risk.

Lisa and I (Graham) now live in what was our training centre in Melksham - happy to meet with former delegates here - but do check ahead before coming round. We are far from inactive - rather, enjoying the times that we are retired but still healthy enough in mind and body to be active!

I am also active in many other area and still look after a lot of web sites - you can find an index ((here))
Melksham Campus - a blog you can read, and a place you can comment

I'm a member of the SCOB - the Shadow Campus Operations Board - and last night I attended a meeting to learn about the uses that are being made of current facilities, from their users, about their current concerns, and about what they would like to see for the future. I can't possibly be knowledgeable about everything - so I have to learn, and to help (with other members of the SCOB) gather views, requirements and desires, so that we can come up with something which best meets the needs of Melksham for future years.

This SCOB membership makes me intensely busy - we met in full last week and will do so again next week. I have a meeting on Saturday afternoon, another on Monday evening and that one I mentioned yesterday (Tuesday). And I'll be at a meeting with a SCOB element tonight too. It's been like this for a while, and will continue to be so. BUT questions like "What is the SCOB?" and statements like "Never heard of you" are all too common. And that's not really a surprise - after all, how do you reach everyone?

To make it far easier for people to find out what's going on, and for people to be able to make inputs, the SCOB is starting a website, in the format of a blog where all the SCOB members can post. Comments will be accepted - and indeed encouraged - to allow inputs from anyone, and we'll be providing "Open question" posts so that anyone can raise anything they wish. Of course, it's not "one size fits all". The website is at http://www.melkshamcampus-scob.org.uk/. There is already information being provided to users at some existing sites and to groups and individuals who are interested, the press is being informed (and we have excellent local press in Melksham), and more will follow.

My answer to the person who said "Never heard of you" is "you have now" ... that's good. It's even better because we're able to start a conversation - we have a route through which we can reach you, and a route through which you can make comments and ask questions.
