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.
Rail Conference, Nottingham



I think this is the first week that I'm NOT training this year (!) ... so I'm at a rail conference organised by the Association of Community Rail Partnerships today and tomorrow, in Nottingham. A wonderful opportunity to network, to meet and talk with a wide range of our rail partners and also (during this afternoon) to hear from four groups taking "the Abellio" challenge all ofwhich makes me realise just how different our line / setup is - and indeed ho wall rail lines vary in their local metrics. Starting with "we live on passenger numbers" where others don't worry about that even to the extend of not knowing, though supporting stations which have fewer passengers per day than our smallest station has leaving / joining our single busiest train.

* How to make stations attractive through art
* How to make rail stations and travel feel safe
* How to encourage more young ladies into the rail industry
* How to involve difficult to reach groups such as mental health folks and benefit for all

I had serious questions on all of them ... but yet, not my issues to be actively concerned and it's good to be informed.

Another busy day tomorrow.
