For 2023 (and 2024 ...) - 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 Our training notes are now very much out of date, but due to upward compatability most of our examples remain operational and even relevant ad you are welcome to make us if them "as seen" and at your own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))

Web Application Deployment module A052
Networking - General
Exercises, examples and other material relating to training module A052. This module is presented on Private Courses and Specially Run Courses only

Whether you're working local computers or on the internet, you'll be networked these days. Networking comprises a whole series of layers of protocols - from the physical to the packet transfer and up to the application specific. And the idea of 'the whole' is that you can send information from your computer to another that may be half a world away, know it will get there, and get the answer back. Truly remarkable how it works, when you consider it's like a postal system with lots of routers along the way that gets you an answer in milliseconds.
