Comment on "What Do People Find Challenging About Cocoa?"
by Michael — Feb 16
I've been trying to figure out how to write Space Invaders in Coca for going on 3 years now. I am familiar with K&R C as well as ANSI, and dabbled with Smalltalk a long time ago. And by extension Objective C is not hard to read.

Systems I have wrote space invaders with no problem:

C64 - 6502 assembly - around a month

Amiga - 68000 Assembly - about 3 months

Macintosh (System 6) - Quickdraw 1 week using Think C

UNIX - text curses lib - 3 days

Cocoa, I have found the documentation a complete nightmare. The documentation explains so little of what it is doing. The auto-magicness of Interface Builder, What does this stuff actually do?
