  • She is all set to become the youngest visiting developer of WWDC

It’s true that age is not a factor affecting talent or potential. A 9-year old Indian-origin girl from Australia, Avitha Vijay, has proved it right. While most of the 9-year kids are trying to begin their life, she has not only developed ambitions but also succeeded to achieve them.

This little wonder, at the age of 9, has already developed a handful of apps for Apple’s iPhone and iPad. Recognising her potential, she has been invited by the US-based technology to its annual Worldwide Developers Conference (WWDC) event in San Francisco. With this invitation, she is all set to become the youngest visiting developer of WWDC.

According to Indiatimes, Avitha has created apps for both Apple iPhone and iPad. Smartkins Animals is one of her apps which are created for children. It helps them to learn and identify the names and sounds of 100 different animals. Another app that she developed helps the children to learn the different types of colours that exist.

Building an app involves a lot of activities like prototyping, design, and wireframing, UI designing, and finally coding and testing. People who work on coding really find this thing confounding that a 9-year girl is able to do it as they know how difficult it is.

“Coding was so challenging. But I’m so glad I stuck with it,” said Avitha.

Initially reported by The Fortune, she had the dream of building a mobile app when she was just seven years old. Anvitha spent a year in accumulating knowledge about coding on various platforms and then at the next step, she managed to learn the basics of programming. Now after two years, she holds a position which most grown-ups would have desired for.

According to the Deccan Chronicle report, most of this year’s visitors are below the age of 18—120 out of 350 global recipients to be precise. Another part of good news is the increasing participation of women; this year 22 per cent of the total scholarship winners are girls.

She said that it has always been her dream to attend WWDC, and mostly importantly, meet Apple CEO Tim Cook in person.

While most of the kids of her age have started to develop ideas, she has not only developed appreciable ideas but also worked hard to transform them into apps. Anvitha is not done with the creation and has a desire to make many more.
