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 Our training notes are now very much out of date, but due to upward compatability most of our examples remain operational and even relevant ad you are welcome to make us if them "as seen" and at your own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

3783Load path, load and require in Ruby, and a change from 1.8 to 1.9
Ruby loads files through the require command from a list of directories held in the $: special variable, also known as $LOAD_PATH. Up to and including Ruby 1.8, this path list included . (the current directory) but from Ruby 1.9 it does not. Here's a sample program:   require "direct"   p ...
2610Cheat Sheet - what do you need for Ruby on Rails?
Here is a "cheat sheet" of the commands you might use to install Ruby, then Gems, then Rails, then get your first application and server running. 1. Ruby tar xf ruby-1.9.1-p376.tar.gz cd ruby-1.9.1-p376/ ./configure make make install Check installation: [root@easterton ruby-1.9.1-p376]# ruby -v ruby ...
3622Loading Ruby classes - where does Ruby look?
If you're loading a Ruby class (or other code) from another source file, use the require function, and give the file name without the .rb on the end of it. Ruby will look in each of the directories listed in $: or $LOAD_PATH in turn, and that list usually includes . (the current directory). See that ...

Some gems from last week ... 1. Ruby's begin and rescue clauses allow you to catch anything exceptional that could derail your program. But did you know that you can also add an else clause to be run only in the event of there being no exception? There's an example from last week's Ruby course which ...
3426Automed web site testing scripted in Ruby using watir-webdriver

That's a very risky approach, and what you really need is a planned and systematic testing regime, with unit tests that must be passed (but will flag fails) run on a regular basis. There ...
2931Syncronise - software, trains, and buses. Please!
To get from my home to the Divisional Police HQ on another side of Melksham, I can take a five minute bus ride on the X72 or 272, change at the Market Place onto the 234 or X34, and ride for another five minutes. So for a meeting at 19:00, I can catch a bus just after 18:00 to be there in good time, ...
2621Ruby collections and strings - some new examples
From yesterday's Ruby course - a whole set of new examples on Ruby collections - arrays (which are ordered lists) and hashes (which are unordered). In other words, you look somethng up in an array by its position number, whereas you look something up in a hash based on its unique key, and the way it's ...
