82 Years old woman is the eldest attendee of WWDC

Apples 28th WWDC event is going to be held on June 5 and 82 year old woman Masako Wakamiya is the eldest attendee who will be taking part in the event.

Masako Wakamiya is a retired banker from Japan and was not satisfied with the Appstore as it lacks games for elder people. So she created her own. "I didn't see any apps for the elderly, so I decided to create my own," she says.

She first created a game “Hinamatsuri”, which was about Japanese doll festival where they celebrate the health and prosperity of girls. The game offer slow narration of the story for elder people. Then she created another free app called “Hinadan” which is available in Appstore and she is willing to create more games and apps like this.

She said she learned to create game for iOS learning from online tutorials. She learned many software codes only from online videos and tutorials.

Masako Wakamiya is the eldest WWDC attendee but do know who is the youngest? It’s Yuma Soerianto from Melbourne Australia. Yuma Soerianto is only 10 years old and had started coding when he was 6 only . He said he learned coding with the help of online course code.org and from Stanford University which he found on Apples iTunes U. He has created four apps like weather duck, drawing app and more within 4 years.

He also has a Youtube Channel named “AnyoneCan Code” where he teaches a basic guide about xCode and how to make apps and games. What’s most amazing thing is, while he was on 20 hour journey to San Fransisco for the conference, Yuma created an app that that could easily calculate sales tax of a product that they are thinking of buying.


Masako Wakamiya, the eldest and Yuma Soerianto the youngest are the special attendee of WWDC. Let’s wish them with a luck and may they progress very well on what they are doing.
