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.
Melksham Quiz

Q: In what year did Charles Maggs set up a Rope factory in Spa Road, Melksham?

That's one of the questions from a quiz... where all the answers were numbers... that I set up for the ladies of the Bowerhill Villager for their Christmas quiz last night. The theme wasn't "Christmas" but there was certainly a "Melksham" element to the quiz.

The idea of the quiz is that all the answers are numbers... so that you can score each question first, second, third, etc from whoever gets the nearest answer. And that can give you prizes out in order and have a winner for each question.

If you want to try the quiz...

There's a copy without answers here... and when you want to know what the answers are, you can take a look at the questionmaster's copy here.

Charles Maggs moved to Melksham and set up his rope factory in 1803, by the way, according to http://www.wiltshire.gov.uk/community/getcom.php?id=158.
