Eight Year Old Becomes World’s Youngest IT Expert

January 19, 2009

Macedonia (ChattahBox) – An eight year old boy has become the youngest person to ever gain their certification as a computer system administrator.

Marko Calasan, from Macedonia, has just passed his certification exam from Microsoft, making him one of the newest whiz kids to impress the world. He hopes this will lead to a long career in computer science, and he has big plans from here.

“I’d like to be a computer scientist when I grow up and create a new operational system,” he told local newspapers.

Calasan has always shown a higher-then-average intellect, learning to read at age two, and excelling in subjects such as math and science. His father, who runs a computer company in Skopje, often calls on his son for assistance in solving technological mysteries that leave him stumped.

“He is obviously extraordinary gifted, but children above the age of six could learn much more about computers than generally assumed,” his mother, Radica Calasan, commented.
