Tim Bernes-Lee

Tim Bernes

Berners-Lee was born in London, United Kingdom (UK), one of four children born to Mary Lee Woods and Conway Berners-Lee. His parents worked on the first commercially-built computer, the Ferranti Mark 1. He attended Sheen Mount Primary School, and then went on to attend south west London's independent Emanuel School from 1969 to 1973. A keen trainspotter as a child, he learnt about electronics from tinkering with a model railway. He studied at The Queen's College of the University of Oxford from 1973 to 1976, where he received a first-class degree in physics.

This was the start of his adventure. After he got a fist class degree he work hard to make online networking happen. This is what Tim Berners-Lee was famous for (cracking the code to make online things work.)
