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 Our training notes are now very much out of date, but due to upward compatability most of our examples remain operational and even relevant ad you are welcome to make us if them "as seen" and at your own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))
Last week - picture of the Perl course
Perhaps you've been reading my blog describing the two Perl courses that I ran in the Middle East over the past couple of weeks. A new part of the world for me - a whole new continent to add to those that I've already visited on business, so I prepared as best I could. I do wish to add a note of thanks to one of our customers who's become a friend for his guidance on Saudi protocols - Adam - THANK YOU SO MUCH.
One of the elements that came prior to my trip was a caution about people not liking having their pictures taken, and so during the second week I was very tentative when I asked if I could picture the delegates during practicals.
Pictures don't catch the warmth of personality in people, do they? I look back and smile at each of the individual pictures that I took and know that here's someone whose company I would love to enjoy again.
I was surprised but delighted when a group picture was suggested at lunchtime. The lighting in the restaurant was more designed for eating than photography (as you might expect!), but here's a picture that did come out with me seated amongst a group of the delegates.
