Young prodigy: This six-year-old Gujarat boy is world's youngest programmer
Meet six-year-old Arham Om Talsania from Ahmedabad who has entered Guinness World Record as the World's Youngest Computer Programmer after he cleared the Python programming language.
The test, which is considered difficult even for aspiring engineers to crack, was cracked successfully by this Class 2 student. According to reports, Arham scored 900 out of 1000 in the examination to be recognised as a Microsoft Technology Associate.
Arham credited his success to his parents. He stated that his father taught him coding at a very early age. He explained when he failed during his practice, his mother supported him and assisted him get the correct answers.
"My father taught me coding. I started using tablets when I was 2 years old. At the age of 3, I bought gadgets with iOS and Windows. Later, I got to know that my father was working on Python," Talsania told ANI. "When I got my certificate from Python, I was creating small games. After some time, they asked me to send some proof of work. A few months later, they approved me and I got the Guinness World Record certificate," he added.
“It was not an easy task to crack the exam and Arham prepared for it on the weekends. "It began with half an hour to one-hour fun sessions, which increased gradually. There were days when he would wake up and say 'I want to build something'. We would spend a lot of time on weekends, sometimes from morning till evening as he began creating small programmes, games. There was no specific preparation meant for the exam but building games, programmes, learning basics became the part of the process. Because my wife and I are both engineers and he asked about our certificates, we thought he can give the exam a try," edexlive quoted Arham's father as saying.
