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 Our training notes are now very much out of date, but due to upward compatability most of our examples remain operational and even relevant ad you are welcome to make us if them "as seen" and at your own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

C and C based languages module C051
C++ - General
Exercises, examples and other material relating to training module C051. This module is presented on Private Courses
and Specially Run Courses
C++ is a low level, Object Oriented language that
is source code compatible with C ... and the effect
of this compatability is to give an exceptionally
powerful, but very complex (overcomplex) language.
C++ is heavily used in large projects such as in
the banking sector.
