View Full Version : Moving from C#,Java,C++ to Obj-C/Cocoa

Mar 7, 2008, 03:50 PM
Hello, I have never coded Objective-C, Cocoa, or even Open GL before. All of my work has been with C# 2.0, Java 5-6, and C++. I currently have an internship with a military contractor, writing C# apps for the army. I do have a good foundation of computer languages and the whole deal. My question is, how hard of a transition will iPhone/Mac OS X programming be? Are there any good books that people recommend?

I assume it shouldn't be too hard to learn these new languages. I learned C# in about 3 weeks (It wasn't much different than Java and even some C++ code).

I am planning on making an iPhone app for my senior project, but I need to get well rounded in the new languages before I can attempt such a thing!

DUH, sorry, I so did not even see that thread. I am an idiot.

Thanks a bunch though!
