Welcome!

I hope you are enjoying Programming in Objective-C 2.0. This site contains, among other things, updated resources, errata, a link to download the program examples, and answers to exercises. I welcome your feedback! Feel free to email your comments to me.

If you have the first edition of this book (Programming in Objective-C), look here for errata, answers to exercises, etc.

You can help support this forum by posting a (hopefully) favorable review of this book and mentioning the value of this forum to you on Amazon.com (see link to book above).

Cheers,

Steve Kochan

Hi Steve and Adam and everyone else  Cheesy

Checking in for the first time to say 'hi' ( always amazed by what the internet allows us to do and access...)

Thank you Steve for taking time and effort in constructing this site - great book and (hopefully) informative forum area.

I am a complete newbie to Obj-C and Cocoa - but have some past experience in C/C++ programming.

Used the mac (as a graphic designer) since 1989 and so looking forwards to cranking up the Xcode/IB apps.

Cheers,

Hello, just wanted to say: Thanks for this book. I tried learning Objective-C last year and it didn't work out well, but this book is amazing and I think I may actually get through it.

I have been intimidated by starting to program on the Mac for quite a few years as it seemed like an enormous bear to get at. Then after spending some of last year researching how and where to start I came across several forums that suggested getting the Objective-C you have written. I was about to get it and realized a new edition was coming out so I waited for that and got it in the mail a couple of weeks ago. I also ordered up 3 other books to get at later, like Cocoa, Xcode and iPhone programming. Most from the same publisher.

Today is my first day at the book and I am currently working on the excercises in chapter 4. I like the book so far, and even my somewhat old and slow brain seems to actually get most of the stuff so far. I was really worried about classes, methods and all that since I never really understood that back in school. So far it seems easy (I am sure I am going to regret that soon though) Wink

Thanks for a great book so far. I really look forward getting back into programming, especially on my favorite platform the Mac (and iPhone). Got some ideas for programs to come, but that will still take months I am sure.

Appriciate this forum to get exercise examples as I am starting to miss some examples to see if I am doing it the right way. I will post some questions about just that in the corresponding forums in a bit. It will be good to know if I understand the exercises correctly, and even more importantly get the desired results.

Thanks again! I hope you will continue to develop this great book for the future as well.

Regards,
Odd-Jarle @ Norway

Hello.  I bought the book last weekend after reading a number of reviews.  Being new to programming I was looking for a book that did not require previous experience with C.  I'm taking it slowly, so am only up to chapter 3.  I am impressed that this forum exists.

Hey everyone. I just bought this book yesterday and I'm excited to get started learning. My goal is to be able to create iPhone apps, but I've never programmed before. I hope that this book will be a great way to start.

Your book is a fine piece of work. I am a newbie to the Objective-C language and your book meets my needs very well.
Presently, I am working on chapter 8 and so far I've understood all your examples and I think I've successfully completed the exercises. Of course, some of Objective-C's concepts are bit unclear to me. So, I was very excited to discover this forum. I expect it to be extremely helpful.
Hopefully, in the future, I will be able to make worthwhile contributions to the forum. For now, I've posted in errata some typos I may have found. Also, I will post in Help a few questions whose answers may improve my understanding of the concepts of Objective-C.
Thank you for all the work that you have put into your book.
