    Two years ago, Vijay, who lives in Australia, was facing a 'cash crunch' when she decided to build a mobile app.

    With only $130 in her piggy bank -- not enough to pay a developer to build the app for her -- she decided to take matters into her own hands and spent a year watching free tutorials on YouTube and internet to learn how to programme, Fortune magazine reported.

    On Monday, Vijay will join thousands of other developers to be a part of the WWDC 2016. The India-origin girl will be attending WWDC as part of Appl''s scholarship programme.
