Article featured SP's Diploma in Infocomm Security Management student Dalton Ng, who is also a tech entrepreneur and a Chief Technology Officer (CTO) at the young age of 18 years old. Dalton started his journey in programming at 11, when he got bored with the Minecraft game he was playing. He borrowed books on programming from the library and learnt Java programming language to build mods for the game. His hobby in programming eventually became a career choice. He launched a software development company at 14 years old and also became the youngest recipient of the prestigious Apple Worldwide Developers Conference scholarship for two years at the age of 16. Dalton recently completed his internship at DSO National Laboratories as a cybersecurity engineer, where he helped build a communications app for Singapore's largest defence R&D organisation. Despite the stress of having to juggle between work and school, Dalton is determined to push on and hopes that he could make it to the Forbes’ 30 under 30 Asia list.
