Galloway's Apps For Apple

Instant Grit

If this doesn't make you feel old and left behind, we don't know what will. Tillson Galloway, a 14 year old 8th grader at local private school Porter-Gaud, has been selected to attend the Apple Worldwide Developers Conference in San Francisco. He's created an app that's a game played with the position of the device it's played on that also requires a series of complicated lines of code written for it to work. Although Porter-Gaud offers computer science classes, Tillson learned most of what he applied to "Doodle Jump" on his own. Most of us were not creating apps when we were in 8th grade, much less getting invited to a conference held by the leading technology company in the world. Congratulations Tillson.
