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 Our training notes are now very much out of date, but due to upward compatability most of our examples remain operational and even relevant ad you are welcome to make us if them "as seen" and at your own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

4087Python network programming - new FTP and socket level examples
These days, it's the exception rather than the rule to write low level network code within your applications - and during today's Intermediate Python course, I wrote an example showing an FTP connection to retrieve data using ftplib. The first example is [here] - grabbing a file, saving it locally via ...
2765Running operating system commands from your Python program
As from Python 2.6, os.popen and friends are deprecated methods and you should use the subprocess module for subprocesses. So that's the way to go if you want to run operating system commands. New example showing this - [here] Starting with: from subprocess import * I can run a process and allow ...
2695TCP v UDP / Client v Server - Python examples
Python's socket module makes it easy for you to write your own clients and server ... and yesterday I produced "Hello World" style examples of each on the final day of our Python Programming Course. I'm going to share these examples with you here ... but I'm also going to add a word of caution first ...
2694Multiple processes (forking) in Python
What is forking If you want a process to head off in two different directions, you can fork it. That results in identical copies of the process being created - the original (parent) and the copy (child), each with their own complete set of variables, and program counter, etc. The clever thing is that ...
2368Python - fresh examples of all the fundamentals
Some more new examples in Python - from this week's course. From my Introduction to Python / simple example to show the power of the language, I present my example that parsed a big data (log) file and counter and sorted by number of accesses the hits from various remote hosts. A long report, ending ...
2365Counting Words in Python via the web
I love writing things in Python - it's a great language for achieving a great deal in a short time. And it works well got Simple CGI scripts. Today's challenge - to count the number of words (and number of DIFFERENT words) in a piece of text, so give an idea of how much work would be involved in translating ...
