At Wooga we try and encourage the next generation of game makers and what better way to do that than by giving hands on experience. In the last few weeks we’ve been very lucky to have two student interns from a local Berlin school work here at Wooga. They’ve been working in various teams as part of their 9th grade work experience program.
Here are their thoughts on their experiences at Wooga.

This past weekend, the German capital saw the 30th edition of the Berlin Women’s Run – Germany’s biggest breast cancer awareness-run. For a huge group of sporty Wooga women and their frenetic supporters this event offered a great opportunity to raise awareness for an important cause, while participating in a fun athletic activity and get-together (which we obviously enjoy here at Wooga).
One thing has become clear in the computer industry over the past four decades: UI, not technology, governs large leaps in adoption. In the first age of personal computing, keyboard-centric character-based UI’s limited access to only those sufficiently motivated (and antisocial) to suffer such dramatic abstraction of the world we live in. In the 2nd age, GUI’s and a “Mouse” opened the usage of personal computers to a much broader audience and enabled a first change in game genres. Today, we are poised on the brink of the 3rd age. With touchscreen devices, the mouse has been replaced by our fingertips and games can be played by everyone, anytime, anywhere. Join Jens Begemann, CEO and Founder of Wooga, as he beholds this new age in game genres and proposes why this new UI standard is a revolutionary, not evolutionary, influence on our industry.

Sometimes, out in the mean wide world, employees can be afraid to tell their colleagues that they are expecting a child. They think this might run them into a little trouble, or at the least might complicate their work. Quite the opposite happens here at Wooga. As soon as an employee brings up that he/she has a child or is expecting one, our Wooga S.T.O.R.K. (Super-Talented-Organizer-Regarding-Kids) is there to help and guide them through any support they might require as well as all those haphazard offices.
Ever wanted to see what walking through our office really feels like? Looked at the pictures, but still need something more lively? Well, finally you can get more than a quick impression thanks to this sweet behind-the-scenes video of our Woogalicious office.
