Resources from the web site of Well House Consultants on the subject of History. We provide open source training course
and business hotel accommodation
in Melksham, Wiltshire, England
Well House Consultants was formed by Graham Ellis in
1995 to provide contract training for a company running
Solaris and Irix courses. We wrote our first Open Source
course in 1996 which was initially sold through that same
company, but in 2000 we opened our own training centre and
we now offer a wide range of open source courses - all of
which we write, maintain and present ourselves as we feel that
this gives us the best tight control over product content,
quality and reliability. In 2006, we opened our own
training centre and hotel so that we can now provide the
you with a complete training package - from a place for
an individual on a public course, through a private course
at our centre for your group, to on site training at your
office if appropriate.
