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.
Helicopter views and tartans

"Can we have more helicopter views?" asked a client from whom we're running a series of courses - by which they mean overviews that put all the elements of the technologies in place on a diagram - showing how tomcat relates to MySQL and how JBoss and Struts and EJBs fit in to the picture. For sure you can, and I note the term "Helicopter views" to add to my dictionary of metaphors.

"Do you have any Scots in the group?" I ask my class, as I use another Metaphor to explain how MySQL's select command restricts the returned values to just a tiny subset of the data available. If you have a tartan where 20% of the warp threads are green, and where 20% of the weft threads are green, then your cloth has only 4% of its area being full green - green on green. Translate that into a Select command; if you choose just a fifth of the columns in a table, and you then use a where clause where just 20% of the rows are selected, your result set, efficiently, is just 4% of the data held.
