I am running hands-on workshops on various topics in computing including Python and Linux, and other topics that are fundamental to how IT works these days.
The focus is on foundations — because once you have a solid understanding of those, you’ll be able to figure out the more complicated stuff on your own.
Workshops are at different levels, beginner and upwards, and are structured to allow each participant to go at her or his own pace and concentrate on the parts that are most relevant. Groups are small, so there is plenty of opportunity to ask questions, either in the group, or one-on-one.
Please get in touch if you want to know more about how it works and if it would be right for you. The nature of the workshops is such that they can be adapted to individual needs.
About me: A long-time computer geek, I graduated from Oxford with a degree in maths, then went on to do a Ph.D. at Cambridge, but moved away from academia before I finished, into IT, out of a desire to do something more practical with my skills. I worked as a system administrator at Ocado Technology for nine years, and developed an interest in psychology and education, in addition to the technology. This lead me to develop and run workshops for technical staff at different levels, which were highly valued by my colleagues who took part. I continue to work in IT while pursuing my interest in psychology by studying for a diploma in this field, and have redeveloped these workshops from scratch in order to offer them to a wider audience.
