A 13-year old Sikh student from Sarawak led the youngest team to the final round of a game coding competition that pitched 70 Malaysian schools.

Nashvin Singh Sidhu was the programmer for the team from the Miri-based school Kolej Tun Datu Tuanku Haji Bujang.

He had some background in coding, and made the best of it when his team was selected along with six other teams to the final round of the My Digital Maker Fair 2017.

“I was selected by my school to attend a two day course for coding. From there, I took my own initiative to pursue coding further,” he told Asia Samachar in a text message.

The team included sound manager Arnold Lian Belywan Cheyenne and graphic designers Annamaria Holek and Mohd Alif Adenan Rocky.

The event, held at the Kuala Lumpur Convention Center (KLCC) between September 16-18, was spearheaded by the government agency Malaysia Digital Economy Cooperation Sdn Bhd (MDEC).
