14-Year-Old Prodigy Programmer Dreams In Code

Fourteen-year-old programmer and software developer Santiago Gonzalez might just be the next Steve Jobs. He already has 15 iOS apps to his name and dreams of designing for Apple. At age 12, Santiago became a full-time college student and is on track to earn his bachelor's degree in computer science and electrical engineering by age 16. By 17, when most teenagers are excited to just have their driver's license, Santiago will have his masters degree.

A self-professed computer nerd, Santiago is fluent in a dozen different programming languages and thousands of people have downloaded his apps for the Mac, iPhone and iPad.

Learn how Santiago's parents overcame a rigid school system that left their son intellectually stifled and depressed and instead followed an unconventional pathway to nurture his incredible gifts. Santiago's story is truly inspiring and his family's experience provides a powerful model for parents of exceptionally gifted children.

PRODIGIES is a bi-weekly series showcasing the youngest and brightest as they challenge themselves to reach new heights and the stories behind them.

[in]genius: facebook's youngest engineer

Meet a not-so-average tech entrepreneur, Michael Sayman. He’s been making iPhone apps since he was 13 years old. His work has made him “more money than I could have ever imagined,” says the Florida teen -- money that’s used to provide for his family.

His work has caught the eye of some of Silicon Valley’s biggest names, but his latest app 4snaps, a multi-user photo game, caught Facebook founder Mark Zuckerberg’s attention—offering Michael an engineering internship at the social network’s headquarters in California.

Teen Girl Rebuilds Car from Scratch

Fourteen-year-old Kathryn DiMaria can't get her driver's license for another two years, but that hasn't stopped her from building the car of her dreams. At age 12, Kathryn convinced her parents to let her buy and begin restoring a 1986 Pontiac Fiero with $450 in babysitting money. Over the past two years, she has painstakingly restored every part of her Fiero by hand, quickly learning advanced mechanical skills such as welding, grinding, upholstering, sandblasting -- even how to rebuild an engine.

With dad Jerry as her loyal project partner, and plenty of automotive know-how from Uncle Bob, Kathryn has embarked on an epic journey that is shattering gender stereotypes, inspiring thousands, and opening doors she never imagined. Watch and learn how Kathryn's project earned her an invitation from General Motors to attend the 2013 Detroit Auto Show and hang out with two female engineers from the original Fiero team.

Hi, I'm John Fish, and I'm a Harvard Computer Science student. In this video, I talk about all of the various projects which I have completed in my ten year journey of coding. I started out learning basic HTML and CSS and making HTML tutorials and CSS tutorials. I then began learning Javascript and creating webpages with Javascript. Then, I began to learn Python and started contest programming. I then continued with Python, web programming, and picked up some other languages along the way. In this video I talk about my national-medal science fair project, Harvard Computer Science curriculum, Harvard Computer Science classes, Harvard Computer science projects, and so on. In this video I give examples of artificial intelligence programs which I have written and I explain basic artificial intelligence for games.

Gigs: Silicon Labs' young coder program finds prodigy

Coders at Silicon Labs were so impressed by Abby Audet's code, she was recruited to be the company's first paid high school intern. RCRtv reporter, Joey Jackson, has the story.

3 years of Computer Science in 8 minutes

This is the most asked question on my channel by far so I thought I'd explain how I learned programming. In the process I got a little distracted and accidentally explained all of computer science in 8 minutes (kind of).

The goal of this video was to show you the connections between modern day (high-level) programming and how it was implemented at the low level. I show you the basics in Java and convert it to C code, then into Assembly, which leads me to talk about how computers perform addition/subtraction, and the logic design behind that is all implemented with transistors. In case you couldn't tell, I love low level programming. Just a disclaimer that I'm not saying this is the best way to learn programming I am simply sharing what I feel was the most valuable in my learning so far. I know many people start with web technologies which can be a great introduction as well! I am currently teaching myself a lot of server networking & all that stuff. I just believe if you really want to understand how to design algorithms and solve problems in creative ways then the most valuable things you can learn are at the low level. Even though C is 40 years old it is still regarded as producing the most efficient code since you have full control over pointers and memory management with minimal overhead. (the only thing faster is assembly.. an even lower level)

Coding: Prisoner to programmer - BBC News

Computer software, apps and websites are all made using coding languages or code for short. But despite the importance of coding, there is a major global shortage of people with the right skills. One group in South Africa is working to change that and hopes to create better opportunities for former prisoners. Brothers For All is an organisation founded by former criminals who now teach coding both in poor neighbourhoods and in prison.

How To Think Like A Programmer

Learning to program is hard because programming feels different than other skills. But programming isn't about the languages - it is about the way one should think.
