For 2023 - we are now fully retired from IT training.
We have made many, many friends over 25 years of teaching about Python, Tcl, Perl, PHP, Lua, Java, C and C++ - and MySQL, Linux and Solaris/SunOS too. Our training notes are now very much out of date, but due to upward compatability most of our examples remain operational and even relevant ad you are welcome to make us if them "as seen" and at your own risk.
Lisa and I (Graham) now live in what was our training centre in Melksham - happy to meet with former delegates here - but do check ahead before coming round. We are far from inactive - rather, enjoying the times that we are retired but still healthy enough in mind and body to be active!
I am also active in many other area and still look after a lot of web sites - you can find an index ((here))
Moving on from Sunnyside and Devizes
The sale of Dad's home (and in earlier years, Mum's and Gran's) in Devizes completed this morning. End of an era. When Mum and Dad moved to Devizes on Dad's retirement - over 30 years ago - I will admit to having been a bit apprehensive about a move on retirement to a town they didn't know ... but it turned out to be a brilliant move; they settle in well into a very welcoming community and did and enjoyed so much having given up paid work. Picture from yesterday - my final visit - picking out one or two memories in the virtually empty house.
Final trip to Sunnyside. Sale completes tomorrow. Shed a tear or three, couple of pictures of memories that I'll treasure. Dad still very much with us as we now are, through us.
Gyp and i tidied around, had a coffee put a few final things in the car, left a welcome letter for purchasers. Gyp stepped out, I stepped out, pulled the door for a final time, walked the garden, drove out up the lane and dropped the keys off with the agent. (written 2017-11-03)
