Haulix Weekly Update #143: “Bake ’em away, toys.”

Hello, everyone! We hope the first post-Labor Day work week has treated you well. The temperatures are starting to slide here in Minnesota and we could not be happier to know that Fall is just around the corner. After all, summer is nice, but can it really hold a candle to apple cider, corn mazes, pumpkins, Halloween, and all the other good things that come with Fall? Before you answer – no. The answer is always no. Check this out:

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.

Development news:

After last week’s discussion regarding our plans to hold off on releasing the updated Haulix until the second-half of summer 2016 things have admittedly been pretty calm for our developers. Our current behind-the-scenes efforts are all about retooling what we already have and improving performances wherever we are able. We want to not only be the most reliable and secure service, but also the fastest and easiest to use. Some of you may think we already have that title, and if so – thank you. We still feel we have a ways to go, and we are not going to stop until we get there.

Blog news:

School is now back in session for most of the United States, so we figured this week was as good as any to jumpstart our content creation efforts. If you browse our most recent posts you will find advice on building a career in between classes, learning to prepare for – and handle – failure, and a few words on the need to make your music easily available online. We also ran a great podcast with Bryan Garris of Knocked Loose. If you missed anything as of late, especially our podcasts, please head over to our archive and catch up ASAP.

That’s all we have for this week. Check back here on Sunday for an all-new music industry job board.
