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.
Celebration circles

Ever since man wanted to praise, to memorialise or to celebrate, he's chosen the circle as one his favourite geometric forms.



Stonehenge, just a short distance up the road from us, is the ancient form ... but there's many more modern forms too.

The modern stone circle - rather a different form - at Heaven's Gate, on the Longleat estate, was constructed very recently.


So was the circle of railway trucks at Ystrad Mynach in the Cardiff Valleys.


Perhaps the best known of modern celebration circles, though, is the Millenium Wheel in Central London ....

Chris Ellis:Looking at the heavens gate stone circle one word springs to mind. Stargate. It's even got a similar name :).
