The Oscar nominees of 2016 have been announced! Oops, this is MOBGEN and we don’t have Oscars, but we do have the coveted Alberto MOBGEN Awards. It began at Christmas 2013, the year I started working for MOBGEN. I gave an Android figure (as I am an devoted Android developer) as a gift to each Android developer who worked with me that year: a way to say ‘Thank You’ for all the hard work they put in since I pushed them a lot to get things done.
In 2014, I was working on a very big project and a lot of people shared some good and bad moments with me. I thought it would be nice to turn a Christmas gift into a bigger event and created the Alberto MOBGEN Awards. I nominated 3 candidates for several categories and everybody at MOBGEN voted to award those workmates in a funny and entertaining way.
And this year, the Alberto MOBGEN Awards has become company-wide, so we can involve and nominate colleagues from all our offices to recognise and thank people for all their hard work in 2015. We’ve added fun new categories, and soon, we will find out who have won the coveted awards! Keep you posted!
