Xamarin recruits best CEO in the Industry

I could not be more excited about this.

Nat Friedman has joined Xamarin as a company founder and CEO this week.

Nat and I have known each other and worked together on and off since the early days of Linux. In 1999, we started Ximian to advance the state of Linux, user experience and developer platforms - with many of our efforts brought to fruition after our acquisition by Novell in 2003.

Anyone that has had the pleasure to work with Nat knows that ideas come in one side, and objects of desire come out on the other end.

In mobile development, we've discovered a great opportunity: a need for products that developers love. And we are going to fill this need with great products that will make everyone's eyes shine every time they use our software.

Update: Nat's most recent product was SUSE Studio.
