Interview with Avinash, a 16 YO kid develops Android App

Hello Friends, After a very long pause we are posting in the CWA [Coffee with Atish] category. Hope you will enjoy it as you have enjoyed the older interviews.

Today’s interview is with a 16 years old kid who has developed his first Android App. Doing such techie stuff is common in the countries like USA but when it comes to India, it’s not so common though nowadays we are noticing our Indian kids are doing wonderful as well. I really appreciate the efforts of our Indian kids who are going beyond the limit to do wonderful things at the very early age.


So coming to Avinash’s story. He is a student and now an Android developer as well. He recently developed an App called WordGyani – A word search game. Where we are talking about Avinash, we must not miss mentioning his friend Sonali Yadav who has been an awesome support for him throughout the development phase of WordGyani.

Without any further ado, let’s check out the interview below

Atish: Hello Avinash, Welcome to www.techtricksworld.com. Our readers would love to know more about you so I would like to ask you to tell something about you.

Avinash: First of all, I would like to thank you for giving this opportunity to introduce myself for TechtricksWorld readers.

Hello friends, its Avinash, I’m a 16-year old android developer and a student too.

Atish: Tell us something about your childhood, schooling and the area where you live.

Avinash: My father is an ordinary soldier in B.S.F (A Para-military force). So, I have traveled many states and cities during my childhood days. In last 2 years, we have changed two states. My family had always supported me when I stop reading my text book and start reading android or tech blogs. And yes, TTW is one of my favorite tech blogs. Previously, I’ve studied at Kendriya Vidyalaya and there I never got 10 CGPA in any class (means, I’m an average student).

I would like to thank my teachers of my current school, K.V Cooch Behar as they always support and encourage my interest in technology.  I live in an Army campus and people around me are very good by behavior and strict too.  Most of my neighbors don’t know about me or my android game and even some of them doesn’t have any knowledge on Android app. I feel bad for this, but they are nice people.

Atish: I have recently used an Android App Word Gyani which is developed by you. I got amazed that being a 16-year-kid, you might spend time playing video games, but you have developed an App.
How you have managed to do it? Anyone else was there to help you developing this app?

Avinash:  Thanks for your kind words.  Sonali Yadav, my best friend had helped me in every stage of the app development. She helped me a lot and always available when I need her help. You can say that she is the co- developer of Word Gyani. She is my classmate who loves to do programming. We spend our most of the time together in writing codes of our game. I managed my time well to balance my studies. I give 5 hours to my game daily and only 3 hours to my studies.

Atish: How you got the idea of developing an app?

Avinash: I have been learning programming from class 6th. When I studied class 9th, I have started learning android app development and read many tech articles on the web. For me, it took one year to learn android app development, and then I met Sonali in class 10th. She told me the stories of many young android developers and thus we have decided to develop an android game. Our teachers recommended us to build a game which entertain the people with fun. After that, we have done some sorts of research and decided to build a Word search game.

Atish: Tell us in detail about the ideas, planning, development and deployment of the WordGyani App.

Avinash: We got idea to develop the game when our teacher recommends us to build an educational but entertaining game. We have installed and played more than 36 games in just 17 days and after reviewing all of them, we have decided to build a Word search game.  We have planned everything like our roles and what each of us has to do. Sonali is very good in UI so I have handed over the UI department to her and I took the programming related jobs. It’s not easy for two 16 year old kids to develop an android game. But, we were strong in our plans & goals and we never lost hope.

Our teacher had helped and advised us a lot and it took 3 months to develop Word Gyani. We have faced many problems in the development stage of the game. However, we found the solution for those difficulties on programming forums. After the development of the game, we have plnned to deploy it on play store. One of our friends had helped us to create a developer account to deploy it on store.

Atish: Is this app available for Windows and iOS users?

Avinash:  Sadly, Word Gyani is not available for windows and iOS user. We are planning to make window and iOS version of the game and trying our best to do the same but it will take some time.

Atish: At this small age, you have started developing apps which is nice. What message you would like to give to our Indian kids of your age?

Avinash: I feel happy with this question, Atish sir.

My message

Students should not focus only on their studies but on their talents too.  Most of the students (85% students) in India want to get 10 CGPA in their academics and join IIT or NIT. But, I’d request them to do what they made for.

If they are dreaming to get job in giant likes Facebook, Google and Apple, then they should not waste their time on looking how much CGPA they get in class 10, 11 and 12. Those giants will notice their talent and experience. So, it would be good to avoid the meaningless or aimless study.

Atish: Would you like to tell us about the things you are passionate about?

Avinash: – I m very passionate about Entrepreneurship and Technology. I love to read entrepreneurship and tech articles before I go to bed at night. Sonali, and me love to do programming and would like to make our game more entertaining.

Atish: What are your future plans? Are you going to be an App Developer?

Avinash:  I want to be an entrepreneur in the field of technology. Yeah, I will do app developing and develop few more games that are awesome or apps that help or entertain our users. Currently, both of us are working on a utility app which is going to rock in android market on its launch day on Play Store.

I would like to say that both of us, not only by me, have developed the Word Gyani. Yes, Sonali has done half of the work for our Android game.

Thanks for giving your valuable time for this Interview, Avinash. I on the behalf of entire Techtricksworld team, wish you all the best for all of your future endeavors.

    Congratz for giving life to an old category (CWA) of TTW Atish.

    I read some interviews in my initial days of blogging and they were inspiring. Now, this one is amazing!

    Good to know about Avinash, Android game developer through your blog and he reacted well to your questions.

    Nowadays, students seem tech freaks and we are getting innovative developments in the field of technology.

    Why are you saying that the techie is uncommon to Indians? What about Sundar Pichai, senior vice president at Google who manages chrome and Android Apps?

    I feel that the Indians are strong in the technical side and thus the foreign countries are outsourcing us for several tech jobs.

    Thanks for bringing Avinash here, getting inspiration from Sonali too 🙂

    My best wishes for this young Andriod developer! I’m expecting more techies in this CWA category Atish, keep your good work.

      I didn’t say that Indians are lagging behind rather I said in India, a very few kids at this tender age, do such kind of things.

      Apart from this, yes Indians are very strong in the tech but that is not the reason of outsourcing. They outsource work to us as they find us more affordable than the agencies available in their own countries.

    I am really delighted to know that young developers are growing a lot these days with a lot of enthusiasm to learn and succeed. Who thought of being an android developer at the age of 16? I never thought that way. Its so wonderful to see such talent in India too. Nicely handled interview Atish. Good Work.
