Neil Mashruwala said he first became interested in computers when he was just 2. At age 7, he began developing a website and at 9 he created the iPhone app Soccer Pachinko.
Neil, a 10-year-old student at Murdock Elementary School near La Mesa, is the youngest person to have created an app and said he has two others on its way. He said getting into the software industry is where he wants to go.
“My future goals are that I want to become a software designer and I’ll make an app which will change the directions of the software industry—something which is really different and nobody thought of,” he said.
Meanwhile, Neil finds inspiration from his parents and his cousin who taught him about game development.
