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.
Sand to Arabia, Coals to Newcastle or Woodburners to Russia

As I'm filtering out unwanted emails, something occasionally catches my eye and I wonder ...

 Hello,
My name is Elena and I live in small city in Russia. I have small daughter but husband left us a few years ago.
Due to deep crisis recently I losted job and can not pay the heating bills for our home anymore.
I finded your address at website and I write you from a public library.
We urgent need heating because winter arriving and the temperature in our home is very cold.
We can heat our home with a portable woodburner, but we unable buy it because it cost too much for us.
If you own any old transportable woodburner from cast iron which you don't use anymore, I pray you can gift to us and transport of it to us.
I hope for your answer.
Elena.
 




Now ... "send me money" I could understand, but my mind boggles at the idea of shipping a cast iron woodburining stove to Russia ... or indeed at the idea of tens and dozens and score of them all turning up in some small City in the Urals or Siberia.
