小编摘要:比尔盖茨,扎克伯格等电脑达人前辈们要注意喽

导读:8岁的小男孩Jay Williams可谓人小鬼大,小小年纪的他在计算机方面可称得上专家,邻居朋友电脑的“疑难杂症”统统难不倒他。一起看看新闻是怎么说的吧!

He's the computer whizzkid who is giving Bill Gates a run for his money - despite being just eight.

But age is just a number to brainy Jay Williams, from Erdington, Birmingham, who is fast gaining a reputation as the master fix-it for computer-related problems.

From helping his neighbours get to grips with the internet, to coming to the rescue when the computers crashed at school, Jay is proving to be a tiny troubleshooter.

He was using a computer by the age of two, and was five when he built his first website.

Aged just seven Jay became one of the youngest people ever to complete a globally-recognised IT qualification, after mum Sarah struggled to find a computer club to keep up with her son's burgeoning talents.

Proud Sarah, 36, said: 'Jay's very bright but he's a lovely boy too.

'As soon as he could sit up he was up at the computer, and by the time he was two he could find his way around one.

'He started off playing games on the CBeebies website, but that soon wasn't enough and he wanted to figure out how to turn the computer on, shut it down and do things for himself.'

Freelance travel agent Sarah quickly spotted her son's potential and set about finding a computer club to sign her son up to, but to no avail. It was while doing some research on the internet that mother and son came across a website for the European Computer Driving Licence, a set of seven exams covering word processing, spreadsheets and presentations.

Jay, a pupil at New Oscott School in Sutton Coldfield, tried out some sample questions and it became clear he had the potential to pass the real thing.

Sarah added: 'I couldn't believe that, in a city as big as Birmingham, there wasn't a club he could join.

'After he took the sample test, I started to see if anyone would let him sit the exams for real but it was very hard to convince people to let him do it because of how young he was.

'He did the first exam when he was six, and had done all seven by the time he was seven, so I am so proud of him.'

Mother and son's persistence has paid off, and Jay is now a one-boy helpline, answering queries from friends and neighbours with email and internet woes.

Sarah said he even came to the rescue when the computers went down during a lesson at school.

Jay has now been rewarded for his efforts after being highly commended by the BT Internet Rangers of the Year award, which rewards youngsters who are helping to bridge the digital divide between generations in their local communities.

Simon Paul, BT community investment manager, said: 'The internet provides a gateway to so many positive things and it is fantastic to see the commitment the younger generation has by showing others how to get online.

'Congratulations to Jay - his award is richly deserved.'
