There are so many people living in India that it is not surprising that this country is full of record holders of all kinds. But recently, a special achievement was recorded there for the Guinness Book of Records — a six-year-old boy was officially recognized as the youngest professional programmer in the world.
The publication Asian News International reported that Arham Om Talsania, from the Indian city of Ahmedabad, who turned just six years old this year, became a record holder, thanks to his phenomenal skills and knowledge.
For Arham, programming is not a game or even a hobby — the boy took an adult Python language course, passed an exam and received a certificate giving him the right to work in his specialty. At the same time, the document was issued to the young specialist not somewhere, but in the Indian representative office of Microsoft.
Arkham Om Talsania is already creating small computer games and plans to develop further in this direction. A gifted child dreams of starting his own business in the IT field, but he can't do it yet because of his too young age.
In an interview with journalists, the record holder told not only about his goals, but also about what worries him. There are a lot of poor people in India and Arham believes that this problem needs to be solved.
The boy began to show interest in high technologies at a very early age. When Arham was two years old, he already knew how to use mobile gadgets. Later, looking at how his father works with the Python programming language, the child became eager to become a programmer.
Usually, at such a tender age, children quickly burn out and are disappointed in their dreams. But Archam turned out to be a "tough nut" and the difficulties did not stop him. The first mentor of the boy was his father, and then he began to attend courses and study coding together with adult students.
