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.
2006 - Making business a pleasure

"Making Business a Pleasure" - a spoken logo for Well House Consultants for 2006.

Whether you're attending a course, staying as a guest at Well House Manor, working for us, or simply visiting our web site, we want you to enjoy the experience.

We don't know exactly what 2006 will bring, but we have some plans and can make some educated forecasts.

Well House Manor

When you book a course, you also book somewhere to stay? The majority of our customers answer "yes", as we provide niche courses and have customers from far and near. In 2006, we'll be bringing "Well House Manor" online - accommodation for the business visitor to Melksham. All rooms will be double or twin, en suite, but willingly let for single occupancy. They'll include wireless and (probably) wired broadband internet access, plentiful desk space and power outlets, and access to printing facilities. Continental breakfast will be provided, and you'll be very welcome to bring in your own take-away for your evening meal - knives and forks, plates, bowls and glasses provided.

Booking a place at Well House Manor if you're attending a course couldn't be easier - we'll simply include it with your booking. If you're not attending a course, we'll be taking bookings online once we have a firm opening date, and also taking advanced bookings by phone. We're looking to provide business accommodation during the week, and a base for adult tourists at the weekend. We'll ask you to guarantee your booking and pay by debit or credit card.

Well House Consultants

We've a full schedule of public training courses running at our Melksham Training Centre, starting with Python Programming on 9th to 11th January and on through to Regular Expressions on 15th December. Other dates, we're available for private courses at our centre or at your offices.

Inevitably, there will be a few changes to the schedule and course content but our policy that we NEVER cancel a course that has a booking remains. We know you need a guarantee that your course will run.

So why do I say there will be "a few changes"?

In the last couple of months, Apache httpd 2.2 was released and although takeup may be slow, our Deploying LAMP and Linux Web Server courses will be revised shortly to include more coverage of the production release.

Perl 6 is also on the horizon - and not so far on the horizon as it used to be. In 2006 we'll certainly see more mentions of the new syntax in our current Perl courses, and there may very well be additional conversion courses announced. You may spot in our schedule that our Perl for Larger Projects and Using Perl on the Web courses are scheduled only for a few months ahead - the OO aspects of Perl 6 will inevitably move into the more regular "Perl" or "Perl 6" courses and the advanced topics courses may need to be lengthened or shortened.

Ruby has been a bit of a "sleeper". No huge call for training and we've been running only private courses in Ruby. It seems the topic is huge in Japan, quite big in the USA and really hasn't made it to Europe yet. However, there's a great interest in "Ruby on Rails". Rails provides a modern, easy to use system for putting interactive web sites together quickly. Embedding code within the HTML, very much in the way that JSPs and PHP does, it lets developers put systems together fast. There's good technical reasons why it scores - in the right circumstances - over both JSPs and PHP. At this stage, I've not scheduled any public "Ruby + Rails" courses ... but PLEASE ASK if you've a group of even just two or three people interested.

Looking further into 2006, we've got one eye on a number of other topics as diverse as Ajax (client side Javascript accessing server side XML data), Applescript (Mac's scripting language) and LDAP (Shared directories for common logins, etc). And we're continuing to watch Open Source web applications from Plone to SMF to OSCommerce.

Coming full circle, we're also looking at Open Source on line booking and reservation software - not only for courses, but for Well House Manor too. We could well end up writing and publishing something under a GPL license ... and that'll open a whole new business facet too.

Whatever 2006 brings, we'll enjoy what we do - and we'll provide services that let you enjoy learning or staying with us - "making business a pleasure".

Happy New Year!

Update - September 2008 - I have added a simple Ajax Example here, and Ajax is now covered on our PHP Techniques Workshop

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.
