For 2023 - we are now fully retired from IT training.
We have made many, many friends over 25 years of teaching about Python, Tcl, Perl, PHP, Lua, Java, C and C++ - and MySQL, Linux and Solaris/SunOS too. Our training notes are now very much out of date, but due to upward compatability most of our examples remain operational and even relevant ad you are welcome to make us if them "as seen" and at your own risk.
Lisa and I (Graham) now live in what was our training centre in Melksham - happy to meet with former delegates here - but do check ahead before coming round. We are far from inactive - rather, enjoying the times that we are retired but still healthy enough in mind and body to be active!
I am also active in many other area and still look after a lot of web sites - you can find an index ((here))
The Horse's Mouth - Ezine reader's index
"The Horse's Mouth" is an online magazine - the ramblings of Graham Ellis.
I'm very fortunate to come across a lot of interesting people in my work,
and they inspire me to think and to write. You'll find a mixture of
technical tips on the subjects we teach, things we have learnt from our
own website and wider, and pictures, thoughts and wider comment.
The beauty of the net is that you can search and read as much - or as
little - as you like.
You can even add your comments
if you wish; although we can't offer you the
same anonimity nor a "freedom of speech", I'm going to encourage you
to post of views that don't agree with mine and
only in what I consider to be exceptional circumstances will I remove
or modify your material.
