Ahmadi child becomes Europe’s Youngest App Developer

Haris Khan a student at Scoil Eoin ,Ballincollig has developed an iPhone App Super Soccer Kicks pictured with his 5th Class classmates.

Haris Khan’s love of sport and computer games have helped him become one of the world’s youngest app developers.

Super Soccer Kicks works on Apple’s iPhone, iPad, and iPod Touch, and was launched last Friday — just days before Haris’s 11th birthday.

He has seen nearly 400 downloads of the free app in the last week, but is already working on a number of new games. His aptitude for computers is probably in the blood, as mum Kiran is a graphic designer and dad Mubarak works for Apple.

The Pakistani couple met and married in Germany and moved to Ireland in 2008, soon after Haris’s sister Simra was born. They said our excellent schools were key for moving to Ireland.

Haris’s principal at Scoil Eoin in Ballincollig, Co Cork, Gobnait Uí Nuanáin, said it is a fantastic achievement for Haris, who she said is an excellent student as well as a keen computer enthusiast.
