Lim Ding Wen A Nine Year Old Programmer

Doodle Kids | Lim Ding Wen If most of the kids at the age of 9 is playing cards and video games. For Lim Ding Wen, A nine-year-old Malaysian boy in Singapore it’s different because he loves to do programming iPhone Application. He made a painting application for the Apple iPhone called Doodle Kids which was love by iPhone users because it generated 4000 downloads already.

Lim Ding Wen’s iPhone application will enable the user to draw on his iPhone using his fingers. It was initially made for his 2 younger sister who love to draw.

Lim, who is now fluent in six programming languages, first started using a computer when he was two-years-old, discovered programming aged seven, and has since completed more than 20 programming projects.

I think his love in programming is influenced by his father Lim Thye Chean – a chief technology officer at a local hi-tech firm who also writes iPhone applications.

So no wonder if you can see my daughter and son blogging 🙂 .

    Grabe hehehe. Wiz kid na yan. I hope he still continues to be wiz till he gets to be adult.

    Most often I wonder how those super-duper intelligent kids end up. Di kaya sila nahihirapan socially? Di rin kaya sila nahihirapan pagtanda nila? At that time when they get old their wiz kid wonder wears out na and they become ordinary people, you and me, so the limelight does not shine on them anymore.
