Comment on "Intro to C Pointers and Dynamic Memory"
by Scott Stevenson — Feb 25
This is great, an awesome refresher and excellent examples of Obj-C which I am not 100% used to.

I'm glad you find it useful, but it's probably unfair to call this Obj-C. Really more just plain C. :)

One question, how often do you find yourself coming back to these first princples when developing for Apple?

The Foundation classes can replace raw C memory management in many or most cases, but higher-end Cocoa apps often need the speed that you get from working at a lower level. You also may need to know this stuff if you want to use a C library in your app.
