  How did you find out about Educated Machine and their recent internship? I run my own freelance web design company called Corrib Digital and a lot of the work I do is based around creating and building WordPress sites for small businesses. I came across Educated Machine who were doing a lot of things I was interested in. I had contacted Micheal previously so when the internship opportunities came up he got in touch to offer me a place.   What attracted you to Educated Machine? The fact that they focus on web development and design but I also wanted to get more into the development of different design services such as Apps. I had delved a little bit into this but not majorly. I needed some sort of introduction and guidance so...

We asked our 16 year old intern Veda to give companies a better insight of how Instagram works coming from someone within the slightly younger generation. We hope you will find it useful as they are truly great tips!   What 16 year olds can teach you about Instagram! from Magdalena Przybylowska  ...

For the first time in a long time, the Educated Machine team went on an out of office adventure. One of the great things about living in the West of Ireland is that once you escape the, admittedly modest, cities like Limerick and Galway there are miles upon miles of countryside packed with interesting features to explore. They certainly make a nice break from working in a soul crushing environment every Monday to Friday. (At this point I’m legally obliged to state that my allusion to a soul crushing work environment is a humorous aside and is not in any way a slight at the working conditions of Educated Machine. I’m told by my superiors that Educated Machine is a wonderful place to work and if anything souls have been observed...

I have a confession to make; I used to be a perfectionist. Being a Perfectionist may seem like a positive trait to a casual observer but in my experience chasing perfection can act damage your mental health if you allow it to get out of control. Instead of feeling like you and your work are perfect it usually ends with you constantly questioning yourself in an attempt to be more perfect than you or any human is probably capable of being. No matter what you achieve it never feels like it was good enough. This can quickly cripple your confidence. Right after I finished college I was overcome with this feeling of not being ‘good enough’. I was so overcome with feelings of inadequacy due to my Perfectionist outlook I didn’t bother...

I’m frequently asked by clients and social media followers for my opinion on the best way to process payments on-line. Obviously there are multiple answers to this question no matter how its worded. In this blog I’m going to focus on payments and processes that are less than €10,000. There ways to handle amounts this size and larger that reduce transaction costs and provide the benefits of on-line automation but I’ll save those for another entry. Now, we’re going to focus on the smaller end of things and I’m hoping this blog will especially be of assistance to anybody looking for the right first steps to take when moving some of their financial processing on-line. Stripe, Paypal and SumUp are the three pieces of software I recommend starting with, each has their...
