Response to: Where does a beginner start?

Rich,
Get a copy of James Duncan Davidson's book "Learning Cocoa with Objective-C." This book is aimed at someone who has neither C nor Object Oriented experience and should help you get up to speed.


If your real interest is Cocoa, I don't think there's any need to learn another language first. Obj-C and Cocoa are both very good to learn with because they are extremely well designed and will teach you good Object Oriented thinking right off the bat.


My only other piece of advice is this: be sure to invest the time when you're starting out to really "grok" Object Oriented programming. It may take some time to get over the hump in the beginning, but once you understand the foundational concepts, you will find it much easier to understand the entire set of Cocoa APIs.
