Charles Petzold has been writing books and articles about Microsoft-based operating systems since 1984. He is currently part of the Xamarin documentation team, which means he’s a Microsoft employee.
Today we briefly discuss what’s new in Xamarin.Forms and then turn our attention to another of Charles’ true loves: analog computers. His new (forthcoming) book, Computer of the Tides: Lord Kelvin’s Machine to Disprove Evolution is part of a series of which The Annotated Turing is the first.
