September has been busy with work and holidays, but I’m gearing up for an exciting and busy October. Among other things, I’m giving two (free) Webinars in that month, and you can already register for them:
- Intermediate Regular expressions: In my previous Webinar about regular expressions, I covered the basics. In this one, we’ll go further, spending a great deal of time talking about groups, backreferences, and some other topics that tend to confuse people. I’ll be using Python to demonstrate regexps, but this Webinar isn’t only aimed at Python developers. Registration is free; sign up here.
- Technical training: I’m starting to spend more and more time helping people to become technical trainers, teaching programming in high-tech companies. (Indeed, I’m in the process of starting my coaching program for people interested in improving their training skills.) In this Webinar, which I expect will be the first of many, I’ll give an overview of the technical-training landscape, how it works, and why you should seriously consider providing training services. I’ll briefly review pedagogical, logistical, and business considerations for the aspiring technical trainer. Registration for this training is free; you can sign up here.
