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.
Carnival

It's only Tuesday, and yet Saturday seems an age away. We were in the town that claims to be the home of the largest illuminated carnival in the world (or I think that's what they said) and there were statues of Guy Fawkes inside and out.

Both statues proudly celebrated 400 years of the gunpowder plot, and were in Guy Fawkes home town of Bridgwater, Somerset.

Should one celebrate so infamous an event? Remember the anniversary of a tragedy for sure, but in what way? A phone call last night reminded me that on 17th April, it will be 40 years to the day since the rail services were withdrawn from Devizes, Melksham, Holt and many other stations in the area. Melksham was restored in 1985 but seems threatened again and I find myself wondering just what to do on Easter Monday ... a long way from the carnival atmosphere in which I started this post
