Haulix Weekly Update #123: “This doesn’t happen in America. Maybe Ohio, but not America.”

Hello, everyone! Welcome to another Haulix Weekly Update. Have you had a good week in the office? It has been unsurprisingly cold in Minneapolis, but our team has been making the best of it with long hours spend in warm offices plugging away at our next big release. We have a few important news items to share, but before we get there we wanted to show you this:

As I mentioned above, 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.


We are less than two weeks away from the start of SXSW, and just like last year we will have people on the streets of Austin all week long. James Shotwell, Digital Marketing Coordinator, will be spear-heading our efforts on site. He will also be hosting our panel, which happens on Friday, March 18, from 2-3PM. Click here for more information.

Development news:

We’ve been asked to keep details at a minimum, but suffice to say this week the Haulix team received the last major piece of what we would consider the second of a three-part lead up to the release of our new platform. We are now just days away from beginning testing on all our upgrades, and after that is complete we will be pushing the finished project to all of you. More details soon!

Blog news:

With all the planning and work being put into the next phase of product development we have admittedly put our blog efforts on the back burner a bit. That said, we are still churning out 5-10 original columns every week, including our podcast (Inside Music). We may not be hitting the same quantity we did three months back, but we believe the quality of what we create is better now than ever before. Don’t believe us? Head over to the archives and see for yourself.

That is all the news we have to share this week. Have a wonderful weekend and be sure to check back tomorrow for a brand new Job Board.
