West Philly’s Zora Ball is Youngest Video Game Creator Ever

Jezebel reports: “Pint-sized programming wizard Zora Ball is now the youngest person to create a full version of a mobile application video game. A first grader at Philadelphia’s Harambee Institute of Science and Technology Charter School, she’s already more accomplished than everyone you know. Consequently, we should all go eat a tub of peanut butter and cry ourselves to sleep. Ball built the app in the Bootstrap programming language, and unveiled her game at the University of Pennsylvania’s “Bootstrap Expo.” Apparently some grumpy olds were suspicious that her older brother was really the mastermind behind the program, but Zora showed them. When asked to reconfigure the app on the spot, Ball showed naysayers what was up when she executed the request perfectly.” The accomplishment earned Ball a trip to see rapper Will.I.Am; you can watch video of that story at Fox 29’s website.
