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.
The train returns for a few weeks

From 26th August until yesterday morning, the Melksham train service was again replaced by a bus. The first train back was the 05:52 to Swindon and I found myself on that service ... with 18 people on from Melksham to Chippenham, and no less than 42 from there to Swindon. Yes, I had raised a group but my group save ticket for 8 was actually a minority of people on the train. Here are some pictures:

the Department for Transport

The view of ...
the users of the service


I'm buoyed up, enthusiastic concerning news / figures / infomation received and observed, even if also tinged with a little dark cloud that says "perhaps too late" - the service is due to be cut back to just 2 trains a day, at less than optimum times for any of the traffic flows, in December

The pictures are both views of the same train; what I see is a whole lot of passengers and talking to them I see a whole wide range of journeys, and I hear of problems for them when the train is no longer available. What the DfT see is a very nice, expensive train with no-one around.
