Mark Zuckerberg programming skills

As pointed by most of the answers that he was not a strange programmer. But he was hell well then that. He has skill to draw real life importance from what he does. Take the instance of any of his app development like face-mash, it grown recognition and i think showing sphere how to get benefit from something is well than just to develop it & no one knows what advantage it will do to them.

About his programming skills in initial years

Zuckerberg created using computers and writing software in mid school. His father trained him Atari BASIC Encoding in the 1990s, and later appointed software developer David Newman to tutor him in private. Newman calls him a "prodigy", addition that it was "tough to step ahead of him". Zuckerberg took a graduate course on the topic at Mercy College close his home when still in high school. He liked developing computer programs, particularly communication tools & games. In one such program, since his father's dental preparation was operated from their home, he made a software program he called "ZuckNet" that allowed all the PCs between the house and dental office to converse with each other. It is measured at "primitive" version of AOL's Instant Messenger, which came out the next year

According to author Jose Antonio Vargas, “several kids played computer games. Mark created them." Zuckerberg himself memories this period: "I had a bunch of supports who were artists.  They'd come over, magnet stuff, and I'd build a game out of it." Though, notes Vargas, Zuckerberg was not a usual "geek-klutz", as he later became head of his prep school fencing team and made a classics diploma. Napster co-founder Sean Parker, a good friend, records that Zuckerberg was "actually into Greek journeys and all that stuff", remembering how he once estimated lines from the Roman epic Aeneid, by Virgil, thru a Facebook creation conference.

This is a very exciting question to me because, as numerous responders have pointed out previously, it's based on a flawed idea.  Mark Zuckerberg is not the being that maximum coders would consider of when they hear the time "programming prodigy".

I think the interviewer equates fame, wealth, or achievement with being a prodigy.  This is nearly never the case in coding.  Coders who are decent will generally make a worth living, but they do not, as a rule, become CEOs.

When I think of a programming sensation, the first person who comes to notice is Paul Allen, because of the anecdote around writing the loader for Microsoft Elementary for the computer while flying to Albuquerque.  Note that this was in 1975; there weren't laptops that you can bring on a plane then.  Allen was script machine code on a piece of paper with a pencil, & he created a loader program that run.  That's pretty amazing.

Another wonder, would be Margaret Hamilton.  She inscribed the code for the Apollo space program.  The sheer scope of that plan and the hardware limits she was dealing with are staggering.  She had ended this code by the time she was 31.  Margaret Hamilton (scientist).
