# Objective-C is not Java
Chris Adamson – @invalidname

Language is effectively owned by Apple now and tied to versions of XCode. gcc is rapidly getting out of date from XCode and should not really be used anymore.
Single inheritence model.
Method calls [object method];
[object method: param1 paramName2: param2];
Method calls are really message dispatches
Slides (from which he is pretty much reading) are available at his slideshare account, so I think it’s two feet time.

I did at least learn enough about Objective-C to see that no sane developer would ever willing use it. All those square braces are crazy. I do like the message-passing concept, though.
