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.
Management view - TransWilts and transport at the end of 2015

There are stories to tell of the tail of 2015. Of traffic levels well beyond target on the TransWilts. Of volunteer and professional help in nurturing and monitoring it. Of wider stratgies looking at upcoming opportunities via franchise changes and other means. Of learning meetings where we meet with people working in rough parallel elsewhere and learn the best practise, and of getting out and seeing public transport in a wider sense and learning what lessons there may be for us in Wiltshire and the wider South West and wedge-from-London areas. Less positive news, I fear, on buses; we lost a number of services in August - sevices such as the 07:20 Bowerhill to Melksham Station and the 18:35 Chippenham to Melksham and Trowbridge, both of which carried double figure passengers on a daily basis, and some indications are that could be just the start of a trend. Further writeups, and images, to come. Another selection follows.

This is a page archived from The Horse's Mouth at http://www.wellho.net/horse/ - the diary and writings of Graham Ellis. Every attempt was made to provide current information at the time the page was written, but things do move forward in our business - new software releases, price changes, new techniques. Please check back via our main site for current courses, prices, versions, etc - any mention of a price in "The Horse's Mouth" cannot be taken as an offer to supply at that price.
