9-year-old kid writes iPhone code

Think you're handy with an iPhone? Know a thing or two about computerz? You ain't nothing. Lim Ding Wen, a nine-year-old prodigy in Singapore, is fluent in six programming languages. And his newest creation, an iPhone drawing game called Doodle kids, has been downloaded over 4,000 times in less than two weeks: Nine-year-old writes iPhone code.

The program allows iPhone owners to draw images on the handset's touch screen using just their fingers. Lim first started using a computer when he was two-year-old, discovered programming at age 7, and has since completed more than 20 programming projects.

I don't even remember what I was doing at age nine, but it sure as hell wasn't writing code. I think I just watched a lot of television. You're a freaking genius, kid. More here: Nine-year-old writes hit iPhone app.
