Categories UncategorizedPosted on

Now this is what amazes everyone! A 9 year old boy from California, named Pranav Kalyan has become the youngest Microsoft Certified Technology Specialist (MCTS).

A nine-year-old boy of Indian origin, whose father hails from Tamil Nadu, Pranav Kalyan is a 4th grade student at Willow Elementary School in California and has passed the MCTS exam in ASP.NET  Framework 3.5 on 12 January. He dreams to be a scientist in the future. Pranav has broken record of Babar Iqbal from Dubai who achieved the sanction at the age of 12.

Talking about the capabilities of Pranav, his father Kalyan said

“As a toddler, Pranav was more fascinated by computers than toys. He started writing small software programs at the age of six,” said his father Kalyan, who was born in Madurai and is settled in California. “He is capable of solving problems in differential calculus and integral calculus. His efficiency in mathematics helped him write programs,”

This kid has become the youngest Microsoft Certified Technology Specialist in the world.

Speaking to TOI over phone, Pranav said he wanted to be a scientist. “I was introduced to the world of computers when I was two,” he said. Pranav found that his love for maths and the challenge of solving complicated problems helped him write computer programs, which required logical skills. The boy, who started to write simple HTML programs when he was six years old, has been seriously preparing himself for the past 18 months. “I spend at least eight hours a day on computer programming during holidays,” he said.
