For 2023 (and 2024 ...) - 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 Our training notes are now very much out of date, but due to upward compatability most of our examples remain operational and even relevant ad you are welcome to make us if them "as seen" and at your own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))

Python - Fast Start
Exercises, examples and other material relating to training module Y199. This topic is presented on public courses %dj%, Intermediate Python

For experienced programmers (but new to Python) and for delegates self-taught in Python too, this module whisks the delegates through the underlying structure of common constructs in the language, shows them the "Python way", and picks up on any fundamental gaps in their initial knowledge.

4713Equality (in Python)
"Equality" ... lovely subject. We're all equal in the eyes of many laws these days - man or workman, able bodied or not, young or old, left or right handed, any colour or religion. But just because we're equal doesn't mean we're the same. In Python, the == operator returns True if the two parameters ...
4712A reminder of the key issues to consider in moving from Python 2 to Python 3
1. New style classes take on the old style class format   But does it matter if you explicity inherit in Python 3?? 2. print moves from being a keyword to a function   Single value tuple as parameter will work in both cases   You may also do a sys.stdout.write 3. integer ...

3519Python - current versions and implementations (CPython, Jython, IronPython etc)
Versions Python originated in 1988, I am told. Think back to decisions YOU made in 1988, and they may have been good ones at the time. But it's likely that a good decision such as "which camera would I buy" made NOW would come up with the same model. And it's the same thing with programming languages ...
2017Python - a truly dynamic language
In Python everything is an object - and that includes functions which are objects which contain blocks of code. And this means that you can define different functions of the same name depending on a condition, and you can replace a function with another one too, if you want to. This really is valid: ontop ...
