Haulix Weekly Update #94 – “Instead of chewing gum, chew bacon!”

Hello, everyone. Welcome the our company blog. The first weekend of June 2015 is upon us, and I know everyone on staff is excited to see Marvel’s Ant-Man just as soon as we can sneak away from our desks. Until that time, we will be jamming this song, which we recommend you make the soundtrack to your weekend fun:

Each and every weekend we like to take a brief break from our regularly scheduled programming to update and reflect on everything happening at Haulix HQ. We are far more than a music blog, as many of you already know, and posts like this give us an opportunity to share more our efforts with all of you.


There is unfortunately no development news worth sharing this week. That is not the same thing as having no development news. There is plenty going on behind-the-scenes. In fact, everything happening with the launch of Haulix 2.0 is currently happening behind-the-scenes, which is exactly why we have nothing to share this week. It’s all codes, letters, and keystrokes that only make sense to coders, and it’s not like we want our special code getting out into the worlds. It’s ours. #Sorrynotsorry. Don’t worry though, we plan to have some updates we are actually able to share in the near future.


The blog has been pretty wild as of late. The amount of original content posted has been on the rise, but not as much as the demand for more episodes of our podcast (they’re coming, we promise). This week featured a few posts we’re incredibly proud of, and we hope you all found time to enjoy the writing we chose to share. If you missed anything, please use the links below to get caught up:
