Lim Ding Wen A Nine Year Old Programmer

Feb 8, 2009 by     20 Comments    Posted under: Apple

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 πŸ™‚ .

      Hmm.. Ooopss I am a bit delayed about this info. Anyway I am just fascinated with those kids that have such an achievement

      • @Dexter Panganiban,

        hahhah, anyways, I have seen the SDK for iPhone, I have to say that it isn’t that hard to make an iPhone app. The iPhone primarily employs high-level programming languages which makes it almost human readable. Much like using VB .Net or Java except for the difference in function names and etc.

      • @Dexter | Tech At Hand Dot Net,

        I also have to buy an iPhone before i can confidently make an iPhone app, but the problem is I dont have enough money to buy an iPhone. Maybe I can buy one when Apple launch an iPhone 2 or something that goes beyond the iPhone. hahahahaha

      • @huan22,

        You get a virtual IPHONE for testing with the SDK. You absolutely do NOT need an IPHONE to develop apps for it.

  • 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.

    • @Gem,

      I think they end up not knowing how to play “sipa” “syato” etc.. not to mention ” piko “

Got anything to say? Go ahead and leave a comment!
