The second instalment from our slack chat channel in the office aptly named "Random" if you are a little lost and wondering what is this magical channel all is revealed in our first blog post slack channel digest vol 1 April 13th There is much talk of buying lady pens and spaceship shaped chocolate moulds. Neither of these lofty ambitions are realised. Darren uploaded a shot of my screen after I abandoned my workstation to do something or other. As you can see from the shot itself, its all My Little Pony stuff. I have no excuses, only shame. If you read the last Slack blog you'll notice I was doing unicorn art at the time. I swear I don't own a fedora and I shave my neck regularly April 14th. Laura was regailing the...

The last bank holiday weekend kind of crept up on the Educated Machine squad. We're so used to working ourselves to death without pause it was a shock for us to find there was to be some government mandated respite from our grind. With this bounty of temporal surplus we decided to head out beyond the city limits in search of adventure. Well, everybody apart from Darren. He had “plans” apparently. He also supposedly has a “life outside the office”, whatever that is. Myself, Ruth and Micheal settled on Kylemore Abbey and the surrounding wilds of Connemara as our destination, as like most people who live in Galway we're constantly pining to explore the place while never actually going. When you live in the city its easy to forget that 40 minutes...

So, 6 months ago I graduated from NUI Galway with a degree in Sports & Exercise Engineering. It's a mixture of Electrical engineering, combined with Human Science and a minor in mechanical engineering. As part of this I studied the computer languages C#, in first year, and Java in both second and fourth year. I love electronics, I love hardware and I loved the problem solving skills developed from Engineering, but OMG did I hate my programming classes. It was really a love/hate relationship. I loved when my code did what it was meant to do and every week I told myself I was really going to concentrate hard in every lecture and spend time on each Java assignment. However sitting in front of a lecture slide that contained 100 words...

Quick intro for those who don’t know, Slack is the instant messaging service we use at Educated Machine. You can create multiple channels through it where employees can discuss the jobs they’re currently working on and share documents easily. You can also just have a random channel where everybody’s free to dump anything at all. What follows is a digest of our random channel from March 28th to April 10th.     March 29th Everybody in the office finds their unicorn names, this was very important to all of us and increased productivity. Unicorn names will be listed in parentheses. March 30th There was much discussion of Emoji’s and how we could go about creating our own for righteous justice. Then we shared a bunch of memes. March 31st Much like Genghis Khan(Windy Delightful Stallion) Slackbot demanded tribute...

A couple of months ago we met with some lovely bloggers in person and over skype to get a better idea of,  "What Bloggers Want" Before we started our Word Press one to ones. We wanted to get an idea about the kind of topics that needed to be covered, and what were the main Wordpress Problems and questions. In this post we will cover how to get started with Word Press Themes. This topic came up a lot as the appearance and how a blog responds is now as important to bloggers as the blog content. A WordPress Theme is a collection of files that work together to produce a graphical interface with an underlying unifying design for a weblog. These files are called template files. A Theme modifies the way the site...

A few months ago if someone said coding, html or css to me I would've just nod but really not have a clue what sort of foreign language they were talking flash forward to today and I can now say I am addicting to coding and have now found new inspiration in my life. Its opened up a whole new world of possibility, when my beloved and painfully annoying brother asked me to come on board with educated machine last October it was the best decision I've ever made. It been a quite a few years since I graduated from GMIT so to say a lot has changed would be saying it lightly and if I can learn coding anyone can. A computer does a lot more than log onto facebook...
