One of the most amazing attributes of PHP is the the vibrant and constantly growing community.

Each week I look over a list of the latest Zend certified PHP Engineers and this impressive young man caught my attention.

Meet Shishir Chakraborty. A thirteen year old seventh grader from Bangladesh, and one of the latest Zend Certified PHP Engineers !

I “think” this makes him the youngest ZCE ever !

He is affectionately described by his educational mentor at Maple Leaf International School and Shishir has started a blog HERE .

I wonder if he will be the next Steve Jobs or Andi Gutmans?  Maybe one day I will work for HIM in the amazing technology company that he invents !

Please join me in congratulating Shishir!
