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.
Erin Brent - rest in peace

"Come as a student, leave as a friend" we say on our coffee mugs. And so it was with Erin Brent, who came to us on a Tcl course 3 or 4 years back. Lisa and I stayed subsequently with Erin and Richard in Oxford, and they visited us in Melksham for a weekend. She returned to Australia early last year, where she passed away towards the end of the year. The news came as a shock to me - a chance comment from a delegate on my course. Glad I know but deeply, deeply saddened.

I last saw Erin at the Oxford University IT Staff conference about 6 months before she left the UK. In all the mad hubbub of the coffee break, Erin pressed a book that she had been telling us about into my hand - specially bought and brought in - and disappeared off cheerfully into the crowd to let me talk to a group I had around my exhibition table. My condolences go out to Richard; they understood each other, and I cannot imagine what he must have gone through and how he must feel.
