Objective C for a beginner?

Posted 01 November 2011 - 05:30 AM

Hello folks!


I was wondering if Objective C would be easy to learnt by a beginner! (I was only messed up with Java, but really basic stuff)

Let me know what you think!

It should be fairly easy to learn. I wouldn't budget a lot of money on tutoring or any other service if that's what you are worried about.

Programming in Objective C, 3rd Edition by Steven Kochan would be a good place to get you started. If you are interested in IOS or Mac Development, you'll need to start learning the Cocoa framework. A quick Amazon search will return a lot of results, I like the Big Nerd Ranch products.

Thanks!

What is a framework though ? :o

I mean it's something complicated like a programming language or something simpler?

Beginner friendly, imho. You can find video tutorials following these slides on iTunes for free.

I call myself a beginner (though not a complete novice) and I'm teaching myself Objective-C and Cocoa.

Cocoa is the application framework used on Mac OSX. It uses Objective-C like Windows uses Visual C++. A framework is basically just a layer of code that's pre-set to tell the system how to build the application. Generally, you don't need to learn too much about the framework, just how you communicate things to/through it.

That said, it does help to know at least the basics of C before getting into Objective-C. That way, things like pointers, containers, objects, and strings and whatnot will make more sense.

Once you begin to understand the terminology and syntax, you can make use of some really good references, most of which have to do with Cocoa - however, you can definitely learn Objective-C without programming a Mac app. (I'm a bit unclear as to whether or not that's what you intend on doing).

At any rate, good luck!
