Time: 8:45am - 12:15pm
Mac OS X is the fastest growing Unix platform on the market today, and the Cocoa
object-oriented development environment is the ideal framework for writing Mac OS X applications. There's a lot to learn about this powerful combination and the first place to start is with a firm understanding of the Objective-C language and Cocoa's Foundation classes.
In this tutorial, learn how Objective-C extends the ANSI C language with a highly dynamic set of object-oriented abilities. You'll also learn how strings, collections, and memory-management work. Even if you plan on programming Cocoa with Java or AppleScript, you'll benefit from understanding how Objective-C works and the legacy that it has imparted to Cocoa.
