I have spoken with Tanmay Bakshi. He is a 16 year old Canadian prodigy coder who had an app published to the app store at the age of 9.
This is fascinating on its own, but on top of that he is a book author (of many books), a public speaker, a YouTuber and a Developer Advocate for IBM.
Not a lot of people have done this much in his or her entire life, can you imagine having done this by the age of 16!
I won't be preaching here that we become like Tanmay, as he is a true outlier, but despite his young age, he has a lot of experience and wisdom that we can all benefit from regardless of our age. Check it out. Have a listen!
