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.
Look out for the motor cyclist

I visited my son Chris in hospital last night.

He's awaiting an operation, scheduled for today, to put the pieces of one of the bones in his lower leg back together - the registrar came around while I was there and described the operation as being rather like putting a kebab skewer in to gather the pieces and hold them. It requires a general anesthetic and he was being taken through what will happen in the operation and the risks.

Chris was on his (motor) cycle yesterday when some [description deleted] pulled out in front of him; he swerved to avoid going over the bonnet, but couldn't miss completely. Looks like the car driver is in considerable hot water for dangerous driving. Thank goodness Chris had invested considerably in good (now ruined!) protective clothing as it saved him from much worse injuries. And thank goodness that he's something of a safety aware driver ...

Premonition? I don't think so, but I was very minded yesterday morning as I drove up to Gloucester to run a Perl course that there are certain road junctions where you need to REALLY watch out for the motor cyclist; I'm very much aware of the current TV adverts on the topic and on places like the A433 / A429 corner south of Cirencester they can appear from no-where.

P.S. Chris is very well / controlled in himself, and commissioned me to write this blog entry as a rant against motorists who don't watch out for motor cyclists!
