I use a Macbook Air 11" i7/8GB/256GB frequently for programming. It's a very good and powerful programming machine. It's CPU performance is more than sufficient (the CPU runs up to 3.3GHz), and compilers benefit greatly from the very fast SSD.I am going to start programming Objective C and would appreciate your thoughts on if I need to get a Macbook Pro vs a Macbook Air and why.
Yes, I think Swift can evil call the old APIs.wait isn't that was OSX, iOS and Swift are based off of
I took a second look at Object Oriented C++ and I guess it's not that bad. But it's still not a very pleasant language in my opinion. -> and >><<, etc. seem unnecessary.To be fair, Obj-C[++] is a superset of C++, so you can write almost all your code in C/C++ and then just call Apple's APIs using Obj-C as necessary.
Hahaha!Looking at Objective-C's syntax makes me want to eat glass.
Ya, I know. And I hate Objective C too."In my opinion. -> and >><<, etc. seem unnecessary. "
They are in Objective C.
Interesting point which hadn't occurred to me since I don't use Apple's interface-building tools... I just do it "by hand" with code, which has served me well....
The only issue with the 11" is when you simulate the iOS product and use XCode's visual tools to build you interfaces and binding data to your product. It is easier to have a bigger screen, but if you are like me with a lot of traveling size does count.
