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.
Coming or going?

Well - that's been one heck of a week and I don't know if I'm coming or going!

Excellent course in Gloucester - a great group of delegates and a real opportunity to show another 9 people what a fabulous language Perl is, and how it can be really useful in what they're doing. To give them some practical experience, and to show them how to write code that is not only good at doing its job but will also be maintainable into the future. Yes - I know that I give courses week in and week out but the joy of the subjects I choose to teach never ceases to enthuse me!.

So what else on that full week?

Well - we've had the unwelcome news that the next draft timetable for the train service to Melksham slashes the services to just 2 a day each way - and one in each direction seems to be timed to suit the operational convenience of the operator rather than any traffic surveys we've done. See my efforts on the Save the Train web site and press coverage

On a much more positive note, we've exchanged contracts on Well House Manor so, barring an unsuccessful planning application, we'll be offering business accommodation included with our training courses, and taking in visitors to other businesses in the town when we don't have a course running here. Although this is an enormous positive, there's been the usual round of papers flying back and forth between solicitors, accountants, vendor, purchaser with things crossing in the post, little issues getting blown into big ones and vice versa.

And as you may have read yesterday, I got a phone call telling me that son Chris was (and still is) in hospital after a road accident. The good news is that it's "just" a broken leg and give him a couple of months he will be as right as rain ... but that was hardly what we wanted to happen. As you can imagine, lots of family activity on this - Chris himself seems to be the quiet eye at the lull of the storm although he's frustratingly bored lying unable to move in a cast in Frenchay Hospital.

Are we in for a quieter week upcoming?

No - "pigs might fly"!

Off to a trade show in London tomorrow to see all the latest in hotel and accommodation offerings; we're working our way very seriously into this and there's a big learning curve. Then I'm off directly to Liverpool for the Dublin ferry - a course there on Monday through Wednesday.

Then what?

Amazingly, I don't know. We DO have a course booked in Glasgow on Thursday and Friday next, but a phone call and email late on Friday afternoon asked about postponement so that the customer can get more people together, and we didn't hear about it until our contact was gone for the weekend. Lisa's going to have to deal with that at the start of next week. And I'm going to have to go to Dublin with all the resources I need whether I'm coming back to the office or carrying on to Glasgow later in the week.

One thing's for sure, it's not going to be a boring week!
