Graham is a computer professional who has always enjoyed writing and giving training courses, as well as working with the nuts and bolts of systems and software.
After obtaining his honours degree in Computer Science, Graham worked in various technical, support and sales roles with an increasing training content in each.
Graham set up Well House Consultants in 1995, to train in Perl and internet-based subjects, and to provide consultancy and contract services in the same disciplines. Well House Consultant's subject range grew rapidly and he now covers Tcl, Python and PHP as well. He's a user of the technologies, as well as a teacher of them!
To further his own knowledge of the subjects he teaches, Graham takes time out to attend lectures, seminars and conferences and meet the "Gurus". He has visited both Canada and the USA to attend advanced seminars presented by Randal Schwartz, Tom Christiansen, Mark Lutz, Tim Bray and others there, and Southern Europe and Asia to see and meet Rasmus Lerdorf, Monty Widenius, David Axmark, Allison Randal and others. Closer to home, he has attended lectures by or met with Simon Cozens, Damien Conway and Malcolm Beattie. He has even taken part in a Perl quiz show hosted by Larry Wall, the "father" of Perl.
It takes more than raw technical knowledge and qualifications to make a good trainer; it also requires an enthusiasm, an ability to interact and an ability to handle any questions and situations. Here are some comments made by customers who have attended recent courses:
