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.
What makes a professional photographer?

Earlier this month, we travelled on the "Costa Mediterranean" on a one week cruise, and we snapped hundreds of pictures. Some good, some dubious in their quality to say the least. And during the cruise we attended a most interesting talk by Kevin Gilbert, professional photographer formerly of the White House press core. The pictures he showed were spectacular and I would be delighted if I could produce photos a tenth as good as his (but then, he wouldn't be looking to give Perl courses, I don't suppose!).

Yet with the coming of good, low cost digital photography, the question can be asked more and more "what's the difference between a professional photographer and an amateur", and Kevin, putting himself down a little, answered that "With a professional photographer, you'll only see one in ten of the pictures he takes, whereas an amateur will show you all of his". What a thought-provoking comment though.

I took 408 pictures.

I've put 26 on line.

Here are links to five - one representing each port of call.
* Venice, Italy
* Olympia, Greece
* Ephesus, Izmir, Turkey
* Istanbul, Turkey
* Dubrovnik, Croatia

You'll find you can link to the other 21 pictures from links below the pages listed above.
