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 Our training notes are now very much out of date, but due to upward compatability most of our examples remain operational and even relevant ad you are welcome to make us if them "as seen" and at your own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))
Features and Benefits
Many years ago, I was sent on a sales training course. Truth be told, I didn't want to go but I had a wise boss and I decided to make the most of it. And it turned out to be something that I look back to with some pleasure as it did so much for me. In other words, it was a huge benefit. It provided me with things I needed, with solutions to things I needed solved.
You'll notice I'm not telling you about features of the course such as where it was, what the hours were, or where we ate lunch. I'm not even going through chapter and verse headings of the subject matter. I'm telling you about the benefits for me.
Today is the final day of a PHP course. I'm starting the day by converting features that we've been talking about earlier on into a real live application that's closely akin to what the trainees will be using PHP and MySQL to do - a huge benefit to them to go away with a template for their application and the thing that they'll remember the course fondly for in the future.
