9-year-old writes iPhone app

From The Singapore iPhone Guide:

Meet the world’s youngest iPhone developer. Lim Ding Wen of Singapore, who recently turned 9 (not a typo), has written an iPhone app called Doodle Kids that allows you to paint on the iPhone using shapes like triangles, circles, squares made up of random colours and sizes.

Amazing Singapore kid!

    The fun part is not the iPhone part – he basically learned it in days. It is that I grow up in Apple II era – and Ding Wen started his programming life as an Apple II programmer using Applesoft BASIC, then Complete Pascal on Apple IIGS, then Orca Pascal (which implements the Object Pascal syntax – one of the early OOP language)… he basically lives through as a programmer in the 80’s and 90s.
