Update on ArlixMeet (25.02.16)

 

We believe in sharing ideas and that anyone should be able to share them with others.

Arlix technology (led by Alex Choi, founder and CEO of Arlix) has been planning a great way of sharing ideas and we decided to call it ‘Arlixmeet’.

On my previous post, (http://arlix.co.uk/blog/?p=105) I said that tickets would be free and that we were still looking for sponsors to sponsor our event. Our team, especially Alex has been (and still is) working exceptionally hard on planning Arlix meet and fortunately, we could finally find a sponsor. I am more than happy to announce that O2 Think Big will be sponsoring ArlixMeet London!

O2 Think Big is a part of the most well known network company called O2 and they sponsor projects around the UK.

It is absolutely great to have O2 Think Big for our sponsor and I hope we get more sponsors in the very near future.

Check out http://www.o2thinkbig.co.uk/ to find out more about them

and if you aren’t following us and would like to get regular updates of some cool things we do follow @arlixmeet on twitter!

If you have further questions about ArlixMeet and would like to know more about it, do feel free to contact either me or Alex or simply comment down below and we will reply as soon as we can.

Why your business needs a web designer

Judging from the title, you might think this is another ad that Arlix puts up so that we can simply earn money. Well, I will tell you something, this is not a normal ad. This is an advice you need for your business to grow.

When I started to get into this job in Arlix, I knew how web designers worked as a team and how they use different softwares to make a website beautiful and interesting. But the thing I didn’t realise was how important they are.

In this modern world, where businesses start and end, we see lots of successes and failures throughout the timeline of the 2000s. The successes you see aren’t simply because of luck. The success comes down to one thing. Web design.

If you hear the word “web designing”, you might think of coding and all the complicated servers. However, web designing also includes designing, as seen in the word itself. Web designing allows your product to look nice and presentable to others that might encourage others to purchase or use your products. This results in the overall net profit of your business and increases the size of your business. The looks of your website is crucial and highly recommended in modern business.

As a marketing director at Arlix technology, I strongly recommend your business to have a web designer so your business portfolio generally look nice and is presentable. Modern business on the internet is all about the looks of the website which can lead your business into success.

Now, it is time to suggest you a great product. Zeon design designs your website for you. The service will design you a stunning looking website which can attract costumers. Steps are simple. Firstly, you can discuss about your business with our CEO, Alex Choi. He will lead you to a good design which perfectly fits your business. After the discussion, your business will have to pay a small upfront deposit, and while you do that, our amazing team of designers will discuss and design your stunning looking personalised website within a few days. After that, you will pay the final amount and all you have to do is watch your business succeed!

Hope this article helps you with your further business.

Are we approaching the end of mobile?

Mobile technologies have come a long way. It feels like ages since I used a flip phone it the rate of development is amazing.

A flip phone, now a rare sight.

However does it not feel to you that we are maybe approaching the end and possibly something bigger is round the corner?

If you look at all the annual updates from major tech giants, they seem to be more and more minor each year, at least in my opinion. Gone are the days when every single update is cool and now we are just getting bigger, more colours or features added which no one really cares about.

Also you can tell that many of these features could have been added years ago… Like the new split screen on the iPad could have technically been done a while ago. Although it is a classic business tactic of planned obsolescence, the tech industry is probably doing it more than any other. Yes, I’m looking at you Apple.

iPhone 6S

 

The current iPhone 6 and 6S only really had a shape change from the iPhone 5 and 5S/5C. The only really technical change was force touch, with even its use debatable. Of course Apple add more processor power every year but that isn’t really a big enough buying point in my opinion.

Personally I think the tech industry is running out of things to add or take away from mobile devices. Over the past few years they’ve slowly added features.

I don’t know what these companies have in store and I think the future of mobile is uncertain.

World Youth Organization app update

We’ve been very lucky to be working with the World Youth Organization over the past few months.

As you may have heard, we are building their app and we have almost finished that.

There is a lot of potential for it and we hope it helps the charity with its aim to support young people by providing more opportunities to them worldwide.

The launch of the app is the day after the main charity launch in the Houses of Parliament.

The app will be available for iOS devices running iOS 8 and higher and most Android devices on Icecream Sandwich (4.0) and above.

Learn+premiummockup

An Introduction to Learn+ premium

When we launch Learn+, we will launch a premium service alongside it.

Learn+premiummockup

Learn+ aims to be a free service that anyone can access, and we don’t plan to change that, but we wanted to offer a slightly more extensive experience to those who need it.

Features include:

  • Live help and tutoring (people can also be tutors and earn some money)
  • Bonus extensions offered by course creators (course creators get some revenue out of this too)
  • No ads or sponsorships atall. Our aim is to put unobtrusive advertising that is relevant to the learning content on Learn+. We know this is possible because companies like Spotify have done this.
  • Many other secrets.

Premium does not have a price point yet but it will be a fairly cheap subscription and we hope that we can demo some of it to you very soon!

What 3 years of Arlix has taught me

It is strange to think that I have now been in Arlix for 3 years. 2012 we launched and it was very different. Many of you may think how 3 years of Arlix has not led to much however I was only 12 when I launched my company called a203 apps.

It was last year where I started to gain real experience. It started with my first team member, Dan, who unfortunately is no longer with us. He volunteered to be customer support and I was amazed that someone actually wanted the post but he was a technology enthusiast and wanted to be part of something like what was then Ace Technologies. When you hire your first person, it worries you a bit. I had never met this person in real life and did not know whether I would be able to trust him and to my relief I could.

Although my first per

Why failure is needed for success

I wrote this article for the World Youth Organization a few months ago and I thought it might be worth sharing it here on the Arlix blog as we aim to make further use of it.

Failure is a rather negative topic, but I feel it is something that all of us come across in our day to day lives, especially young people. You might do bad in your exams, you might not to go on a date with that special person you’ve been longing to, it could be a wide variety of things but deep down I feel that failure is needed for success and I’m going to try and show you why.

1. Mistakes are often the best lessons
Failure can be due to chance, like losing the lottery, but normally that failure that matters the most are the ones that come from mistakes or decisions.

I’ve had a lot of failure from mistakes whether it’s been with friendships or just poor grades in an exam but I can say that those failures have often shown me where I need to go next and what I need to do, which leads me onto number 2.

2. Failure means can provide answers
Somethings we just don’t know until we try them, failure can often show us when something is for us or not. My parents might cook me something and I may not like it (could be a failure to please), that shows them that I don’t like it and they might know not to cook me that again. Although that is a very minor example, you can put that on a lot bigger scale.

3. Failure can make you strive to do better
We’ve all felt angry at some point in our lives… Often we don’t like to accept failure, and that’s a good thing because it inspires us to do better and to work harder.

Big names in business for example have all failed before they succeeded, Walt Disney, Richard Branson, Bill Gates and Henry Ford, all experienced their share and that only inspired them to try even harder, and when they did they succeeded.

4. Failure provides you the best chance of success
This might sound a little weird but research by Stanford University showed that those who are at the top of their field have failed a lot. Failure gives you knowledge and knowledge is power. The more you know, the more of an edge you have over someone else.

I hope these thing might’ve brightened up your day, especially if you’ve recently experienced failure. Remember that many paths to success will go through it, and a saying I really like is: If you never fail, you will never succeed.

Some Learn+ updates

I thought it might be nice to keep you updated on how Learn+ is going.

We are now improving the functionality on the website to actually work and app functionality should be coming soon. Please note that if you are a beta tester then you may not get app access as soon as website access is available. Things like our course builder are coming along well and we can’t wait to start building our own courses ready for release with it.

We are also going to be relaunching our crowdfunder soon so please do support us to receive a few rewards from us aswell on Kickstarter.

If you still wish to register for the private beta then please email learnplus@arlix.co.uk.

We’re really taking the time to build a quality product so please continue to bear with us. The public launch date is set for the end of this year and the beta’s are coming soon around late summer and autumn/fall.
