Xamarin Forms MVVM - IValueConverter

In the previous posts, I have been creating a "calculator" using the MVVM architectural pattern, explaining the ICommand and INotifyPropertyChanged interfaces. I suggest you fork the code from this repository and take a look at the branches so you know what we added in each of those posts, or better yet, read through those posts before continuing with this one.

Because in this post we will take a look at the IValueConverter interface, and how it is a key interface that you can use when you have some information on the Model that has to be presented differently in the View. Say a DateTime that instead of displaying "2018-03-21T15:04:30.0000000-06:00" has to be displayed as "two days ago".

I will implement a very easy example that I hope will make it clear how you can use the interface.
