Retiring, March 2020 - sorry, you have missed our final public course.
The Coronavirus situation has lead us to suspend public training - which was on the cards anyway, with no plans to resume

Please ask about private 'maintenance' training for Python, Tcl, Perl, PHP, Lua, etc
Happily continuing private consultancy / programming work
 
A story of goldfish

Lisa put five goldfish in our pond the summer before last. We looked at the pond the day after they were introduced and we could see three - but there was plenty of pondweed to hide the others. A day or two later we could only see one fish, and even that was nowhere to be seen a week later.

Recently, Leah came in from the garden. "I thought you didn't have any fish in the pond" she says. Well - there was one and he's this long. And indeed, looking more closely there's a number of darker fish in the pond too that can only be the originals - we've certainly never put any other fish in there!

How easy it is not to notice something, someone, some member of the back room team? Yet all contribute to the ecology of the pond, the running and the overall success of the company.
