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.
Improved test in Cucumber with RSpec

pass and fail tests are very basic - so we can use other Ruby gems (such as Rspec) to provide shorter and more flexible checking within our tests. Beware - installing rspec on my system replaced rather than supplemented the previous tests.

To use Rspec, my step implementation now includes

  require 'rspec/expectations'

and I have replaced the "if xxxx pass else fail end" structure with

  expect(@capacity).to equal(arg1.to_i)

You may find on older installations you'll use

  @capacity.should == arg1.to_i

instead, but that has been deprecated and is inefficient as it requires a should method on every object!
