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 Our training notes are now very much out of date, but due to upward compatability most of our examples remain operational and even relevant ad you are welcome to make us if them "as seen" and at your own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

4401Selecting RECENT and POPULAR news and trends for your web site users
How do we give people recent news, or talk about recent trends or popular posts>? The obvious answer is to take data for the last "n" days or months and analyse that.

3159Returning multiple values from a function call in various languages - a comparison
I've always thought it a bit odd that you call a function with any number of parameters, and yet it returns a single value; in Java, C or C++ you declare a return type (void if there is not to be anything returned) and you are then constrained by that specification. There are, of course, other ways ...

On today's final PHP sessions, we discussed search engine optimisation ... and came up with this list of things to consider with your site with regards to getting yourself well ranked with the search engines (which is talked about a lot), and ranked in such a way that your page is offered when you want ...
1735Finding words and work boundaries (MySQL, Perl, PHP)
If you're searching for the word "mile", you probably don't want the page that tells you that Sally Smiled at Harry. But you may want to find a Milestone, even if it is within quotes. Regular Expressions are your friends! In Perl style regular expressions (which also work in Python, and in PHP with ...
1020Parallel processing in PHP
PHP is designed - where necessary to the exclusion of other uses - as a web page tool. In other words, where a language design decision needs to made between something that is good for the web use, but bad for more general use, the decision will always be in favour of the web. "I don't care how it effects ...
