Comment on "A Roadmap Through Cocoa"
by Nick Rundquist — Jan 22
The thing that makes it hard to answer something like this is that there are a lot of frameworks, meaning there are a lot of possible roadmaps.

There are a lot of ways to get from Austin to Houston but you only need one map to see them all. I think what people are looking for is something less like the "roadmaps" we're used to in the tech industry, which tend to be one dimensional, and more like an actual two dimensional roadmap where you can see what your choices are. You say that there are a lot of frameworks but it's not even easy to find out what they are. The best list I could find is this. I don't know what others are looking for, but I've always wanted to see something along the lines of what Sun produces for Java. Indeed in general I have to say that I think Sun does a much better job structuring its Java documentation than Apple does its Cocoa documentation and it's this lack of structure that leads to a feeling of being lost in the forest.
