Next week in User Group Land...

The Twin Cities Languages User Group presents:

Comparing Objective-C to Java/.NET (Sept. 10th, 2009)

Objective-C, a fossil of a language from the '80s is resurgent: the language of choice for Mac development and, currently, the only language for iPhone development. In this talk, I'll cover some of the history of Objective-C & Cocoa (the Apple standard library for Mac/iPhone), how it differs to languages like Java or C# that you may be familiar with and show you some interesting techniques that can't be easily accomplished in other languages.


Dan Bennett is Senior Director, New Product Technology for Thomson Reuters based in Eagan, Minnesota, responsible for a team building the next generation of web applications for West. Dan hates to manage things he doesn't understand, so keeps his hand in with a variety of development projects, including leading the development of the first iPhone application for Thomson Reuters.

All those iPhone developers should do themselves a favor and learn Smalltalk. It should be an easy move for them, and they won't regret it for a second.

I do prefer to use Java. I'm just satisfied with the works it can do for me. - YORHealth
