By an amazing co-incidence, I'm in Cambridge this week ... running two 2.5 day Tcl and Expect courses, then back just across the road next week running two 2 day Perl introduction courses of the bootcamp style.
As ever, there's not there's not too much time to sight-see (that is NOT what my clients ...
|1000||One Thousand Posts and still going strong|
Can you believe it? In the two and a half years I've been writing here I have posted no fewer than ONE THOUSAND items and articles - ranging from the frivolous to the serious, and from the long to the short, and from daily life to highly technical tips.
Why do I do it? Because it gives me a chance ...
|2743||Public Open Source Training Courses running this summer and autumn in Melksham|
We've got a continuing series of Open Source courses scheduled through the summer ... as I write (late April) we still have availability on all public courses, although in one or two cases our rooms at Well House Manor are all spoken for.
Python - 2 courses, each every 2 months - one for newcomers to ...
|2538||Open Source Training Centre and Courses for 2010|
It's a while since I wrote about our training centre, and some of the things that I wrote in the past have been updated or upgraded since. So here's an up to date description, written in December 2009 telling you about our location and courses for 2010.
All of our public courses are run at Well House ...
|2425||Weekend and Christmas Promotion - Well House Manor Hotel, Melksham|
We've been busy at weekends at Well House Manor this summer - a notable increase in business, and this weekend we have returning guests once again, which is always a good sign. But we're conscious that, as autumn comes, fewer people will be coming to the area for holidays and weddings and we should ...

I never see the most downloaded image on my website. Well - hardly ever. Here it is:
Brash? Yes! Bright? Yes! It's an advertising link, to let people who arrive at our web site looking for technical information (and there are thousands a day) know that we can help them with training courses. ...
|1065||Graham Ellis - an Introduction|
Sharing an introduction I made elsewhere - I'm not just an IT trainer - I do have other interests!
Hi, I'm Graham Ellis. I've been in the "IT" industry for 30+ years, and I live in Melksham, Wiltshire. I run specialist training courses here and many of my customers (or until last December, they came) ...
|1136||Buffering output - why it is done and issues raised in Tcl, Perl, Python and PHP|
When you go to board a plane at Heathrow, do the ground staff admit the passengers one at a time, ensuring that each is seated before the next boards, and sealing and re-opening the main doors between each? What a stupid and inefficient system that would be!!
The same thing applies when you're programming ...
|1318||Well House Manor - feature comparison against the old place!|
It's now over a year since "The Old Manor" B&B, which used to operate from the same premises as Well House Manor, closed its doors and we bought the building for our new venture. Although we changed things very quickly and opened with new facilities and new everything else in just four months - ...
|2370||C++, Python, and other training - do we use an IDE|
A question from my inbox ... "Do you use Visual Studio, or a similar IDE". And worth a full answer, and one to be shared.
An IDE or Integrated Development Environment is a piece of software that provides the programmer with tools to manage his / her code, and to help him / her with code authoring ...
|2253||Walks in and around Melksham, Wiltshire|
Melksham is a town with a history around every corner - a guest at the hotel on Saturday morning was asking me a few questions, and I've put together a few of the walks that I enjoy from the hotel. To show you how much there is to see on each of these walks, I have also listed out all of the places ...

Are YOU running a business that trades in Melksham? If you are, then read on - there's something in this for you AND there's something in this for the town. And - together - it's for ...
|2052||How was my web site compromised?|
It looks to me as if this car has left the road and come to a sudden halt against the building, with the result that both have been somewhat damaged. But why did it happen? Was there a mechanical failure such as brakes or tyres? Did the driver fall asleep at the wheel or something distract him? ...
|1912||Book now for 2009|
We review our prices every 1st January, and at this time of year often say something like "Book now to be assured of getting your 2009 course at the 2008 price". But this year, I can predict rather earlier than usual, that we'll be holding the majority of our prices once again. And with course prices ...
|1819||Calling base class constructors|
In all object oriented languages, you have a facility called inheritance where you can define one type of thing ("class of object") based on another, and the newly defined class ("subclass" or "extended class") takes the initial ("base") class as it starting point.
In your code for your base class, ...
|1754||Upgrade from PHP 4 to PHP 5 - the TRY issue|
It's often the most surprising things that catch you out on language upgrades! Our new web server is running PHP 5 (5.2.6) whereas the old shared service was running PHP 4. No problem with the conversion, PHP wise, except the exchange rate page which goes to the European Central Bank's web site and ...
|1663||Python in an afternoon - a lecture for experienced programmers|
Last Friday afternoon I was set a challenge - to present Python in three hours to a group of 20 very experience programmers who, however, knew nothing about this particular language.
The session was in Central London - my directions started off with "Get off the Tube at Oxford Circus", so Londoners ...
|1488||New trainee laptop fleet for our Open Source courses|
"The average age of our fleet is less than 3 years" - so said EasyJet when we flew with them earlier this month. In our business model too we keep our equipment right up to date - our training centre and business hotel was completely refitted less than 18 months ago, and we have just replaced our entire ...

Girlfriend is a piece of software that was designed to meet requirements of both the leisure and utility market, providing mobile facilities, facilities for home entertainment, and also undertaking a management role under which ...
|1224||Object Relation Mapping (ORM)|
Another technical term? Yes - this one is a formal name for how you convert a database into Objects - applicable to any OO language (Perl, Python, PHP, Java ...)
Let's reduce it to basics.
* SQL Tables become object classes
* Table rows each become individual objects
* Individual columns become attributes.
