Oh, old Arlix. Back in late 2014, Arlix wasn’t very old. Alex had just switched identities from Ace to Arlix, and started getting people on the team. I remember when Alex came to me, making the second post in my very own Google+ community (which is no longer up), asking if anyone wanted to join. I thought it would be fun, coding with other people for fun, and besides, who doesn’t want to say they work for a company? Of course, I replied very positively, and before I knew it Alex was asking me to start a Google+ Hangouts conversation with him, so I proceeded as such, and pretty soon I got introduced to the rest of the team of about 3 or 5 people–I can’t exactly remember the number–and began just saying “Hi!” and “I look forward to being with you guys!” like any induction into a group of people. Not too long after, I was making graphics, like the Arlix Messenger and Radar Browser logos. After those two, I really stopped doing work, since I had no idea what to do. Since I had the sudden free time, my life took back over, and when I was asked to work on other Arlix products I said I would but never could. Back in January of 2015, shortly after Arlix began to transfer over to Skype from Hangouts, I got a message from Alex, saying I was no longer a part of Arlix. I also received an email, finalizing the statement.
How was the team?
I remember the Arlix team, made up of not too many people, I can’t exactly remember all of them. They were all very nice, kind, and welcoming upon my inception, and they were easy to work with. The whole thing was very new and different for me, but I enjoyed it because it was the same people to come back to every day, not like it had been previously, where I was constantly talking to different people, and I’m not saying that meeting new people is bad, but it was so scattered for me that I never had any real lasting friends, just knew most people for a few hours. Maybe two days if I was lucky. As I recall everybody was very kind but there was very little productivity; the cause of my virtual ‘pink slip’ in January.
A short summary
The old Arlix team was very nice and pleasant to work with. The people were nice, the atmosphere easy. There was little productivity in those old days, which is why a chunk of the team was cut out. Thanks for reading, and don’t forget to follow Arlix on Twitter, Instagram, Facebook, and Google+.
