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.

Oops ... I missed my blog entry yesterday - indeed, I had been up so early in the morning after a short night that I fell asleep around 8 p.m. and slept through - didn't even hear Lisa come in from her "Villager" meeting. But, running crisply again this morning I've already spoken with plasterer, plumber, events co-ordinator and graphic artist (4 separate people) and the show's on the road. Ovenight and late yesterday emails answered and I expect to hear the crunch of gravel as customers' cars roll up the driveway in a few minutes.
This week, I'm running a private Java course
- and it's a greater pleasure than I had anticipated. We dropped publlic Java courses a year or two back, as everyone has different needs, and Java's a language that's been oversold quite absurdly. Some applications are excellent, but there's a significant number of people using Java because of commercial / marketing decisions when it's not right for them and without vetting / weeding out, they can drag the public courses down. It's a rather different thing on our Deploying Apache httpd and Tomcat
public course, though ... by that stage people have established a usually-excellent use of Java applications. (written 2006-09-19, updated 2006-09-20)
