    this tutorial is annoying with correction popups just make the correction and include them in your videos. also try speaking without sounding monotone. the videos is 3:47 and I almost fell asleep.

    Thanks for the vid. Question. Whats the difference between the 'char' and 'string' data types? It seems that a 'string' could also be considered a 'char'? I would be inclined to only use 'string' for everything. But I assume this would be incorrect. Any ideas?

    No one can watch this tutorial unless they have a fairly good background with programming. I might as well go and sit in a Chinese classroom and listen to Chinese conversations without understanding a thing. This tutorial isn't for me…

    Hi Chris.
    I am a beginner in programming. I'm currently doing Java.
    My question is what is the difference between c, c++, objective c, or Java. 
    Is objective c easy?
             Thank you:)

    Chris i am a c++ programmer but i have hard time to learn object c. What is your advice for me? How can i speed up my learning? I know object oriented and most of programming concept but i see how slow i am moving.
    I even can not make an app alone.

    Great vids Chris

  34. Will Peterson Avatar

    What's a good website for all of this? I want to start, but don't know all the "NS" stuff.

  35. Michael Mooney Avatar

    Thank you so much, I learned C++ thinking you could make apps in that but using objective C is so much better lol
