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.
Python and the Magic Roundabout

I'm giving a Python course in Swindon today and tomorrow, and my group of seasoned programmers were concerned (that's putting it politely) that blocks of code in Python are inset, rather than being written between a { and a } as happens in most other languages.

Have you come across the Magic Roundabout, formerly the County Ground Roundabout? It's a cluster - five smaller roundabouts around a central core. And it works very well - very well indeed. And yet ... it worries newcomers to Swindon. Us regulars take more care that usual of other drivers in that area, but never the less get through it quickly and easily.

Chatting with my Swindon Residents, I've learnt how they were concerned and worried about the Magic Roundabout when they moved to the town, but how they now treat it with a degree of loving care and are proud of it. And I was able to reassure them that they'll get to feel just the same way about embedded blocks in Python.
