Five year old Ayan Qureshi last month became the youngest Microsoft Certified professional, accomplishing the feat at the age of five years, 11 months.
The Pakistan-origin British boy gave his exams in Birmingham University last month, toppling Pakistani Mehroz Yawar who passed the exam at the practically ancient age of six and a half.
Ayan developed an interest in computers and high tech gadgets in the very early age, thanks to his father Asim Qureshi who is an IT consultant.
He built his own home computer lab and likes to spend his leisure time in the lab. Later Ayan successfully created a computer network, connecting two PCs, two laptops, one switch and a router.
Ayan installed and configured Windows 8 and 8.1, partly following training videos, partly listening to his attentive father’s tips.
