I met 12-year-old web developer, Obaloluwa, at WordCamp Lagos 2018. He learnt how to code from the internet at 11, he has built quite a number of websites and also the founder of King O Designs.

Good stuff

When I was 14 too, I was a web developer, but nobody knew me, that isn't my excuse tho... After 6 years, I learnt that what I was building at age 14 were all crap and bullshiit.

The only thing that can be useful for this kiddo is for him to keep learning, he might be a web developer but won't be able to have a good idea of his own, except someone is ready to help him shape his ideas. Besides, without proper mentorship or training, I can bet he would build crappy websites. No hating, just being truthful here.

Although he's young, but his headstart is pretty awesome, I hope a good tech company hires him and groom him to get the best outta him

Good luck kid, keep writing the codes

I was on the lookout for a flat-headed monster to say something like this, and I wasn't disappointed. sad

Me self I'm wondering how possible. Though if its static webpage it is possible. I once taught 2 kids how to build a webpage with nodeJs.I tell you this guys started building static web pages in less than 3months. 4months later they built with nodeJs but meanwhile I got my 200k from the parents..

It's very possible.

I am currently a veteran in 4 different languages and web technologies. HTML is so easy for a Kid to learn. I learnt HTML in one day.

Practice makes perfect. If the boy codes everyday.. Builds different apps not for sale but personal enjoyment, you'd be surprised how great he will become.

So I don't think the boy is lying. He seems legit. Python is not so difficult as well.
