Ben Duguid works in London, UK as a Technical Lead for The BIO Agency, mostly delivering web sites on various Microsoft based platforms.

He has run internal training sessions helping other developers get up to speed in the technologies he knows about, and tries hard to get others to do the same.

For what it's worth he is an MCPD in ASP.NET 3.5, and is currently a Pro-Tem Mod on LEGO Answers

comment API for Android or iOS connecting to EV3 by bluetooth
Taking a look at the code in the Windows API, there are no external dependencies - so assuming you have access to the Bluetooth ports on iOS/Andriod, there should be nothing stopping you porting this to your platform of choice with a little effort - the main "API" is in the Lego.Ev3.Core namespace, which is pulled into the Phone/Desktop/WinRT projects that provide the communication wrappers that are then used by the sample projects - the Desktop project has the added excitement of Brian's WIImote support ;)

comment API for Android or iOS connecting to EV3 by bluetooth
Hmm, I imagine there will be eventually - I'm guessing MS offered to release the Windows one as LEGO hadn't released the "Commander" app on their platform. LEGO did release a BlueTooth Developer Kit and Mobile Application Software for the NXT so it's probably coming.

comment Turn a tank a specific number of degrees
One possible reason for using something other than the motor encoder is to account for the slippage - if you don't know how much your tracks are slipping, telling the motor to turn 20 degrees isn't going to result in a 20 degree output.
