About the Author

Saumil Bhukhanwala (@saumilzx) is a Computer Engineer (MS, Iowa State) and an avid travel photographer. He holds two patents in the USPTO and has specialised in Digital Imaging, implementing the Zone System of Ansel Adams. He is most thankful for a campus job at the Iowa State Daily, as a photographer. He presently creates travel packages for SEAsia, an area where he has published photographic guides. He is finishing a travel app for the iPad. Here is what he hopes to contribute in: Technology: Saumil has been using Apple products since 20 years, and loves discussing IP and interface/user experience of products and apps on the Mac/iOS. He is catching up with iOS programming, to ensure that his travel apps are as good as his first hand experience. He also hopes to create tutorials for using Mac/iOS for various purposes, especially content creation. Travel: South Thailand (PhangNga bay), Angkor (Cambodia, Siem Reap), Bangkok, Singapore and Bali are his main areas. Magical experiences on your first trip is almost a given, even on a short holiday, with Saumil's travel company TerraXYZ. This will be wrapped into apps on the iPad in 2014. Taken a bit longer, but the objective is to create an app which does the job in 3 taps. Editing 100,000 photos and getting the animations to snap in around GPS-maps, has been challenging but rewarding. Sports: Saumil has been a table tennis player during school and college days. He also studies chess, cricket and cue-sports but follows tennis, soccer when possible. We all watch sport in our free time. Might as well study it and see how we fell short in our early days! The most fascinating aspect of world sport is how great players 'reply' to opponents and situations. He is obsessed with many rivalries and fortunately, we can follow it all online and with videos replays. Saumil's first sports book - Dot Chess, The Cricket in Between explores the chess in cricket. His recent book: Lessons at Love All Play - Legend Tendulkar Matters! is about Indian legend Sachin Tendukar and his journey, as felt by the mind of the author. Shotzx is Saumil's web resource, where we can study examples and scoring patterns from one sport and apply them to another. One day we will have a formalised method to do that, and also to play a sport with scoring system of others (with adjustments).
