Talks and lectures
Resources from the web site of Well House Consultants on the subject of Talks and lectures. We provide open source training course
and business hotel accommodation
in Melksham, Wiltshire, England
From time to time, I'm asked to talk to larger groups. Where that's an evening
event close to our base that doesn't mean I have to take a day off training I'm usually
happy to oblige. Longer distances, and weekday / daytime events also catered for, but
on a commercial footing.

STOP PRESS / 29th October Sadly, this weekend has turned out to have been a poor choice for many of our friends, and we've decided not to have a specific Geekmas weekend this year.

"If it's Friday, it must be Italy". We're in the middle of four days of seeing four different new places; call it "broadening the experience" if you like. Broadening the experience is like research - you don't know what you're going to learn until you learn it, and you don't know what use (or unuse) ...

I regularly take part in "Just a minute" at TravelWatch SouthWest, where delegates who wish to raise an issue of give a quick update are allowed to speak for up to 60 seconds ... at which point a timer rings, and they have to stop. Such talks, to an audience of receptive friends and contacts, are usually ...
|924||The LAMP Cookbook - Linux, Apache, MySQL, PHP / Perl|
It all started on Friday as we came back from the pub. I was describing how we've been, twice, on Neil Bauman's Geek Cruises but never been asked to talk or lecture, even in a "lightning session" on them. A little wistfully, maybe, as I'm a "wannabe" - I would love to get up and deliver a talk just ...

When I first ate a chicken chop suey, in my childhood, the dish was described and explained to me to help me decide whether or not I wanted to try it. But once I have tried and decided about chicken chop suey, I could make an educated guess what beef chop suey and vegetable chop suey would be (as I ...

Lisa and Graham are planning a "Technical Open House" at our place in Melksham, Wiltshire from early afternoon on Saturday, 27th November  through to early afternoon on Sunday, 28th November. We say "come as a student, leave as a friend" and many have; we'll do some update presentations on what's ...
|1459||Interactive training, and advancing techniques further|
One of the unusual things about the way that I train is that I write examples in front of my classes - I don't just go through cases that have been prepared ahead of time. Not only does that mean that I can show people what they want to see rather that what I have guessed they want to see, but it also ...

This is St Catherine's college at Oxford University - built just on the outskirts of the City, and venue for the 12th Oxford University IT Support Staff Conference last Thursday, where I was fortunate to have the opportunity to be invited to speak.

I'm talking for an hour to 60 people at the University of the West of England this evening on "Open source - here to stay or a flash in the pan?". I've known about the talk for a couple of months, I had the choice to take it or not and I could have written it weeks ago ... so why on earth did I leave ...
