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.
Saudi Arabia or Weymouth?

It's a quiet, cool Sunday morning ... great to be back in the UK having spent last week delivering a Ruby Course in Saudi Arabia. Walking out of my accommodation there just after 7 in the mrning, I was already ht by a wall of heat - in the high 30s celcius - for the 15 minute / 2 checkpoint walk to the training room, in the most magnificent air conditioned centre. The contrast today - I'm going to be on a a selection of rickety old trains as I go up to Swindon, then travel down via Chippenham and Melksham for a day at the seaside - the first "Weymouth" of the year. Advertising has been limited - a singlepost on the TransWilts facebook page; and I find my self excited tey worried as to whether we'll have an empty train , a full one, or somewhere between. So much depends on how the weather looks this morning. Report back to follow.
