    Objective-C?

    I've always wanted to learn Objective-C. Not for any particular reason - just another language added to the list. I guess I like learning about different programming languages in the same way some people like to learn different spoken languages.

    Anyway, I was wondering if anyone knew any good tutorial sites for the language? What are your thoughts on the language?

    I know I should google it, but the last time I did I don't remember getting very much in the way of tutorials.
    Good class architecture is not like a Swiss Army Knife; it should be more like a well balanced throwing knife.

    Right...
    The word rap as it applies to music is the result of a peculiar phonological rule which has stripped the word of its initial voiceless velar stop.

    is it like a primitive 'C with classes' language? It looks strange.

    Yes it does look strange but after spending some time with the language I've decided I prefer C++ for OOP work.

    If you really want to check the langauge out why don't you have a look at the apple doccumentation since they're the ones developping it...
    They say that if you play a Windows Install CD backwords, you hear satanic messages. That's nothing; play it forward and it installs Windows.
