GameDuell in the news
Successful provider of casual games plans 120 new hires – Corporate communication, employer branding and PR under responsibility of new Head of Public Relations
As per tradition, GameDuell started a year full of events by attending Casual Connect. This year, a part of the GameDuell Team once again drove to the Casual Connect in Hamburg to discuss the latest trends and developments in the web, mobile and social games industry.
The recent GameDuell Tech Talk featured Jeanfrancois Arcand. He is is a visionary and pioneer specialized in the development of modern, asynchronous web frameworks for client-server communication. If you missed his presentation about the Atmosphere Framework, check out the video.
Do you want to shape the world of games? Do you want to work on a fun, entertaining and challenging product and meet outstanding people from all around the world - then GameDuell might be the right choice for you. We are hiring super talents for our Berlin headquarters.
For the past week, a young man has sat in the offices of GameDuell, Germany’s largest game site. His name is Fabian. He is just 14 years old and has already earned the respect of the GameDuell development team.
He showed us his version of Crazy Chicken programmed within a few weeks during Berlin’s cold winter. Fabian replaced the main characters with UFOs which he finds much cooler than chickens. He lets them soar through space on a mouse and keyboard controlled flight.
Although Fabian is proud of his little game, he does not seem completely satisfied with it.
“I only programmed this to reinforce my knowledge of the commands and to learn a new method. I would much rather work directly as a developer already, expand my knowledge, and invent brilliant games.” He has, of course, no intention of leaving school just yet because he knows, “to do this, I need to graduate high school first.”
Success in programming does not, as many suspect, require complete sacrifice and Fabian does not want to deny himself a carefree youth. He has many friends, plays soccer and is currently avidly following Germany’s progress in the European championship. He also likes music. Due to time constraints he only plays a single instrument right now, but he is still young and has time to add a few more later on.
