This week, we're updating our course layouts and descriptions. Presentation and materials always gently change over time, but just occasionally there's a need to make a step change to clear out some of the old and roll in the new. That's now happening - but over a long and complex site it's not instant and you'll see sections of the site changing up to and including 19th September.

Writing up new C / C++ notes.
There's something about leaving new training modules until I'm very close to the wire before writing them that helps me come up, efficiently, with quality material that I'm happy with for quite a while thereafter. And so it's been this weekend. I've been very much in the C / C++ arena in past years and I've a lot of background there (neither pointer nor objects scare me!), and I've taught a lot of C courses before. But, this is to be new material and I've had my nose to the grindstone churning out a linked series of examples over 8 new modules.
So ... my mouth is shorter than usual, not as long, and probably a little less coherent than usual; it' sbeen a l-o-n-g day. Tomorrow, just the notes that cover four of the 8 sets of examples to be written up; came to a half this evening, just a few minutes ago, on "pointers v references". I know right enough, but I know I won't get the words right at this time in the evening! (written 2006-07-09)
