(This post is from my old, old, super old site. My views have changed over the years, hopefully my writing has improved, and there is now more than a handful of folks reading my site. Enjoy.)

So I'm going to have to droll about Cocoa again for a minute.

It fucking rocks. I swear this is the nicest language I've ever used- clean, easy, and uber powerful. The only problem is the learning curve... I know I'm still at the bottom, but I'm just thinking up these little applications, and things to add to those apps, and BANG! I'm done.

I just added a new feature to ShellPad that only took like 7 minutes to implement- I swear this would have taken probably 20-40 minutes in REALbasic, or maybe fucking 2 hours in java... jeeze. I can understand now why people get so religous about Cocoa.
