- Kutlwano Tshatiwa is a 14-year-old genius who taught himself how to code
- By 2019, he already created nine apps and has now designed a new one that will help kids with mathematics
- The app, which he named Mathgeek, allows pupils to practice maths equations
Kutlwano Tshatiwa is one bright young man. Briefly.co.za previously reported he taught himself how to code when he was just 13 years old.
The self-taught coder has since created more than nine apps and his newest Android app will help pupils develop their maths skills.
Tshatiwa hails from the North West province and he has a passion for coding. He revealed he participated in the Eskom Expo ISF 2019 , where he won the highly commended project award.
He also won a gold and bronze medal at the levels under the ISF, Tshatiwa said.
The young coder revealed:
"I now have developed an Android application which helps learners practice maths, it's some sort of a quiz application, and I developed in only three weeks time using C# programming language."
Briefly.co.za previously reported on another self-taught coder who is changing the country with his inventions.
Lesego Finger, a 21-year-old self-taught coder, is making matric pupils' lives a little bit easier. The Fundi Best Educational App 2019 award winner created an app that helps matrics prepare for their final examinations.
The young coder saw how reliant young people are on their smartphones and he saw an opportunity to help them.
So, he created Matric Live - a "multifunctional education app that is reinventing the way pupils learn by making learning contextual, visual and not just theoretical".
