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.
Hotel Exchange Rates

Ever been in a hotel and looked at the exchange rate they're offering to convert your pounds to their local currency, and shuddered? Or looked at the rates offered by hotels in England and wondered if they're ripping off the overseass visitor?

Well - the boot's on the other foot now as we work out what to do at Well House Manor. I don't see currency exchange as a big market for us, but I do feel we should be able to accept payment in US Dollars and Euros if that's how the customer wishes to pay.

Our first step against the normal is to admit, quite openly, that our exchange rate sucks when compared to that offered by the banks or credit card companies, and to suggest to our clients that they should use those alternatives if possible.

Second step - to have an exchange rate that does update reasonably often. We can do that automatically by using the exchange rates from an xml file that's offered on the web by the European Central Bank at http://www.ecb.int/stats/eurofxref/eurofxref-daily.xml - updated daily, it provides central rates to and from Euros and by double-converting (not a problem as we're using central rates) we can come up with a dynamic exchange rate page.

Here's the Hotel exchange rate page that we'll be using at Well House Manor. If you're operating a hotel too, you're welcome to point people at that page or to develop your own. In fact, our exchange rate code might be more generally useful. See here for a source code listing to help you get started.

This is a page archived from The Horse's Mouth at http://www.wellho.net/horse/ - the diary and writings of Graham Ellis. Every attempt was made to provide current information at the time the page was written, but things do move forward in our business - new software releases, price changes, new techniques. Please check back via our main site for current courses, prices, versions, etc - any mention of a price in "The Horse's Mouth" cannot be taken as an offer to supply at that price.
