Are there any Objective-C programmers out there? What's it like to program in? Does it combine the best parts of C and Smalltalk into the ultimate expression of programming language design? Or is it an unholy abomination?

    Forget Objective-c unless you will be maintaining/working on large scales projects already implemented.

    Swift is the future.

    Obj-c is nice to know, but all Apples docs have now been updates to include both Obj-c and swift so learn swift my friend.

    @Wabby It's out of personal interest rather than professional. Nobody programs in Objective-C in my town.

    I'm just interested in programming languages much the same way that a GNU/Linux addict distro hops.

    I'd go for "abomination". My short time learning it manifested itself with me looking at the manual between the fingers of my hand that was stuck to my forehead.

    It's weird, but not terrible once you get used to it. Apple made it pretty useful with classes, properties, protocols (interfaces), Grand Central dispatch, and easy multithreading.
