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 Our training notes are now very much out of date, but due to upward compatability most of our examples remain operational and even relevant ad you are welcome to make us if them "as seen" and at your own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))
The best Open Source library in town
In our library, we've over a hundred books that cover Perl
, sixty books that cover PHP
, and over 40 books on each of MySQL
. It might not sound quite so impressive to report twenty books on Tcl/Tk
but that's just about every one that's been published ...
You can search through the descriptions of our books by subject
and by author
online, and if you're on a course at our training centre
, you're more than welcome to borrow books overnight.
Realistically, there's no way as a tutor on various Open Source subjects that I can know everything
- but you can be re-assured that with our library and our high speed net connection, answers to all but the most obscure of questions can be found within a minute or two.
If you're not a customer but would like to browse through our books here in Melksham, please email me. I would be more than happy for you to drop by with an appointment for an hour or two one evening and use the library. We'll even offer you a complimentary coffee!
