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.
Call Centres, selling, and a pause for thought

Have you noticed that telephone calls you "have to" make to renew a service are now being taken as an opportunity to sell to you? It happened to me just the other day when I called in to confirm receipt of a new credit card. "While we're waiting for the computer to authorise you, can I just ask you about your household cover ....?" ... Yuk!!

I called to renew my car insurance yesterday - should have been a simple transaction but the gentleman on the other end of the phone was pushing a new product and wouldn't let me renew until I had heard him out in full. Clearly part of his job; I got a little sharp with him, but once the renewal was in place I commented "I'm sorry I got a little sharp - it's nothing personal but I get so many people trying to sell me things. I wouldn't want your job". His reply? "You're lucky that you have the choice". Indeed I am, and I shouldn't forget that; he's doing what he's told in a call centre in New Delhi as the only way to keep himself and his family.

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.
