Welcome to Seer Computing - IT Services for IT Professionals.

We are Project Managers, App Builders, Database Designers, IT Trainers, Technical Authors and Consultants and we are celebrating our 20th year in business in 2020. This is our website, it's quite comprehensive so make a cup of tea or coffee before you delve into it, there is a lot to tell you about us including; our high quality IT technical training courses, our technical consultancy facilities including Database design, Project Management options and our bespoke App design and development for both Android and iOS.

A lot of people ask us why we are called 'Seer Computing', the answer is quite simple, when we were first incorporated in 2000 we originally set out to be an Oracle Consultancy, providing a number of different aspects to that Database, Consultancy, Project Management, Database Analysis and Business Information consultancy and of course Oracle training, we couldn’t call ourselves 'Oracle', that name was already taken! But we could call ourselves ' Seer' which is a synonym of 'Oracle', in other words someone possessing wisdom, insight, a wise person, a prophet, an Oracle, and we believe that’s a fair summation of our skills in the Oracle Database product, we haven’t lasted this long without knowing a thing or two!!

All webpages have our contact details together with appropriate enquiry forms which ask relevant questions for the page you are on, there is of course the obligatory contact page plus information about privacy etc. we do not have any cookies on this website which is why you haven’t had to agree to any cookie policy.

Let's start with the IT technical training courses, there are over 120 to choose from, they range from User level courses such as SQL Developer up to Programmer level courses like Java programming, each course has its own webpage for you to view its details, we've categorised our sitemap to make the training courses easier to navigate. The course web-pages are all laid out in the same style, the first part consists of summary information necessary for you to see at a glance the duration of the course, number of exercises in the training and what level of expertise is needed for a delegate to be comfortable when attending the course (speak to our training advisors if you need to discuss the skill set of people when booking the training), in some circumstances we recommend splitting the team into two courses so that people with more advanced skills can be given more 'taxing' exercises with a slightly faster paced course.

All of our courses come with exceptionally comprehensive training manuals, they are for each Delegate to keep and make notes in, they all have example workings and where appropriate, screen shots, these training course manuals form an invaluable aid as a reference book following the course, they are printed on 120 gsm paper and are made to survive both the course and being used for months and indeed years following the training, our Consultants report seeing them on people's desks well after they have attended the course (the pens we also supply for the course may have run out in a few instances but people keep them because they incorporate a torch, although most take them home for their kids!!).

On-Site training - Have wheels will travel ...

We have completely portable training labs which we can set up in less than an hour of arriving at your site.

Each delegate gets an individual machine linked to our network, we dont use any of your equipment or your wifi, we are totally independent and outside your firewalls

On-site will make sense to your Company if you have more than one delegate for the training, if you have staff who might be needed during the day in the office or if the travelling costs are prohibitive to send a lot of delegates to one of our public courses.

All hundred and twenty plus of our technical IT training courses are available on-site, that means we come to your premises, you provide a suitable room for your delegates to work comfortably in, sufficient tables and chairs etc., we are unique in that we do not need to use your network or any of your systems (not even your Database), we bring all of the equipment necessary to give you a first class training experience. Each Delegate gets a Dell workstation for them to use individually for the duration of the training course, if necessary and at your request, Delegates can work together.

One major advantage of on-site training is that you pick the start dates and times, co-ordinating the various needs of your Delegates can be like juggling eggs with boxing gloves, having the freedom to pick when the training takes place removes one headache, another advantage might be the personal commitments of staff, again we are very flexible with our "at your venue training", you can specify what time we begin the training to accommodate family needs, appointments etc. and as long as we can still fit the course in, you can also specify finish times, in fact we are so flexible we can train on weekends and even at the end of work shifts (talk to our friendly sales people to discuss).

One of the main advantages of on-site IT training is that your Delegates will not be incurring any travelling or overnight subsistence claims, when we quote you for training you will find that not only are our charges quite reasonable but they are also inclusive of any expenses we incur providing the course, no hidden extras, no expensive hotel and travelling charges on top of our quotation, what we quote is what we charge. Full stop, period.

For convenience we have listed the categories of our courses for you to compare them side by side, well actually up and down but you get the gist, there's a comparison of our Oracle SQL courses, our PLSQL courses are listed, as well as MySQL course breakdowns, PHP versions etc..

Our public training courses take place in all major cities across the UK, Ireland and Europe, from London to Edinburgh, Birmingham to Dublin.

The courses are limited to a maximum class number of six to get the most out of each session. If you'd like to find out more about our Public training courses, click here.

As well as onsite, all of our IT training course can be scheduled at venues close to your offices, sometimes you don’t have the space, we arrange the venue etc. again relieving you of the hassle. Of course you and your Delegates can come to our offices in Swansea, so close to the Mumbles, the number one place to live in the UK 2019 according to The Times newspaper … why do you think we live here! One of the advantages in coming to our offices is that we will introduce you to the Swansea evening life, you can sample Joes Ice Cream and we will treat you mid-course to a curry in one of the many restaurants on St Helen's Road, just a five minute walk from our offices, we won't encourage you to sample the local ales (much) you have to have clear heads for the course.

A number of our courses are also available at a variety of public conference centres throughout the UK and Ireland at set dates in the year, these range from the capital of the UK, London, the capital of Wales, Cardiff, the capital of Scotland, Edinburgh and the capital of Ireland, Dublin, there are other public training sites and they all have one thing in common; they are all held in conference facilities close to transport links, there is plenty of refreshments throughout the day and lunch is provided, course numbers are kept to six which means you don’t have to shout across a large room over fifteen other delegates to ask a question. Our public courses mean that if it is only you attending that you can get high quality IT training with us without having to travel too far to get it, check out the Public training course locations and we list the training and the dates coming up. As an aside we can also provide one to one training if you need to learn a language quickly and wish to have 100% attention from one of our Training Consultants.

Every one of our 120+ training courses are available as one on one mentoring courses, same quality course, same service and we'll even come to your place of work or in a nearby training location. Ask us for further details

One of the other services we provide is our Data consultancy, this can be anything from an overview of your current Database producing a comprehensive report and recommendations, we can analyse your future requirements and also build your new Database for you, if you have time we have morphed our ideas into a cartoon character called DataDog, he's just a way to visual the problems you can have with Data and how Seer Computing can help you. We also operate a technique called Data Coaching, this is about intense sessions with your analysts to tear down the weaknesses of your current Data storage and to build strong healthy Databases in return.

One of the things we noticed when we are presenting our IT courses is that our reference Appendices are used quite a bit during the exercises. Our Course Appendices are very comprehensive but they can't be searched and there isn’t really any room for working examples, so we began designing Apps to help everyone in a particular language to understand what's available in the product, so for example we have published an Oracle SQL functions App in both Android and iOS, there's also an app for PHP functions and another App for MySQL functions, but we got a little carried away, not only are each functions listed but we break down what each Function does with working examples, plus because we know where the problem areas are, for example, we also give date format examples etc … don’t think of them as a replacement to our training courses, more like a supplement for when you are working in Oracle SQL, PHP or Java etc.. If you have a programming language or need to create a reference App get in touch.

Advert for AppsClick to send us a message about the App you need building

We've been offering bespoke App Development for a number of years now, sometimes we promote the App such as Ana Chidzoy's A-Z of Yoga, sometimes we keep discreet and we simply build the App for a Company for them to promote, we have several in the pipeline including a rollout of our PAPA template which is effectively a way to publish via an App, it’s a magazine App, it’s a newspaper App, it’s a periodical App and with our facilities we can customize it to a Company's or an Organisation's requirements. We're thinking of setting up App training courses in Xcode and Android, speak to us if you want to register an interest. Don’t forget that a lot of Android Apps are created using the Java language and we can already provide training in Java 11, in fact our association with Java goes back to well before Oracle purchased Java from Sun, we particularly like using Java Swing to interface with Oracle and MySQL databases, guess what, Oracle own MySQL now as well! We have listed all of our Java courses for you to compare Java training.

Advert for Apps Click to read our thoughts on developing Smartphone and Tablet Apps

Talk to us if you have an App idea but don’t have the skills to turn your idea into an App reality, we have a number of ways of working with you, you can of course simply pay us to build the App but we can also talk about an App collaboration, sometimes it's good to have different input from different areas, and it doesn’t have to be a Uber App or something that big, many successful Apps are niche market but of use to a lot of people, we could build a Uber App by the way (just saying). If you are wondering what it takes to build an App we have a nice webpage breaking down some of the areas that need attention.
