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.
Database or Progamming - which to learn first?

Q I'm going to be writing a database application, but I don't know much about programming of about databases. Should I learn Python before MySQL, or MySQL before Python?

A As far as our training is concerned, the order in which you learn the two technologies isn't especially important. They're like two large but well fitting jigsaw pieces - you need them both, but the order that you put them into the puzzle doesn't really matter. And in terms of connecting them together, there's just the tiniest drop of "glue" to go between them which we do cover on the Python course.

Footnote Although I've answered this question in relation to python and MySQL, the answer would equally apply to other programming languages such as Perl and PHP. In the case of PHP, some prior knowledge of HTML and web site structure is required before the PHP course - we can help with that on our technology for PHP day ... but that's the subject for another day's entry!
