An 11-year old boy has finished six Microsoft-certified courses, making him the youngest Microsoft charter member. The boy, Uzair Abdullah (now 12-years old) enrolled himself in the courses and travelled to his nearest Microsoft Center in Peshawar to take the tests where he became certified in web development, server and networking, cloud platform and infrastructure, among others.

“We always wanted him to do such courses to enhance his abilities in his field of interest,” his mother, Ambreen Abdullah, told The Tribune. “A tutor used to teach him at home during his stay in Gujranwala where he did not go to school. With the help of tuitions he appeared in the board examinations of class eight.”

Microsoft offers a wide range of certification exams based on the company’s technologies ranging from entry-level courses through to those targeted towards IT professionals (or really motivated 11-year olds).
