14-year-old programmer Tanmay Bakshi has a fascinating resume. He is a cognitive developer, TEDX Speaker, author and teacher.
Bakshi was in India to attend an event organised by BPB publications at Amity University and Galgotias University, Noida.
At the age of seven, Tanmay had set-up a channel — Tanmay teaches —where he provides magic of decoding programming and also talks about careers on it. “Programming is a very good career opportunity, as developing a language is an art in itself. Any technology company needs a programmer and a best in the field can grab a fat pay package.” The channel has around 2.8 lakh subscribers, The Indian Express reported.
While speaking to the daily about how he got into programming, Bakshi said, “As a child, I was fascinated with this machine and its operations. Looking at this curiosity, my father taught me programming and I slowly got involved in it. I have started with basic programming language, and slowly started cracking C, C++, Java and other programming languages.”
Bakshi, who left India when he was just a year old, wants to apply his resources to uplift the education and medical sector of the country.
