ObjectiveC is the Hotel California

I’m quickly coming tot he unshakable conclusion that Objective C is a huge barrier to developers leaving the Apple Ecosystem. It’s a lot more than just learning a pile of SDK calls. Every “platform” has those. This one demands a completely different programming language and interaction paradigm which forces you to reorient your brain. Layer in the constant and consistent pounding on quality and aspirations of perfection – why would anyone want to leave…

Sure hope it’s a pleasant stay. Seems magical so far. 🙂
