YouTube Preview Image

Is Santiago Gonzalez the next Steve Jobs? The 14-year-old programming prodigy knew the alphabet at 2 and fractions by age 4. Enrolled in college at age 12, he is on track to earn his bachelor’s degree in computer science and electrical engineering from the Colorado School of Mines at age 16.

Santiago, who is fluent in a dozen programming languages, has created 15 iOS apps that thousands of people have downloaded. His dream: Work for Apple, of course!

Read the Rolling Stone feature about him from December, 2011.
